1 The God of Abr'ham praise,
who reigns enthroned above;
the Ancient of eternal days
and God of love!
Jehovah, great I AM,
by earth and heav'n confessed
I bow and bless the sacred Name
forever blest.

2 The God of Abr'ham praise,
at whose supreme command
from earth I rise, and seek the joys
at His right hand.
I all on earth forsake,
its wisdom, fame, and pow'r,
and Him my only Portion make,
my Shield and Tow'r.

3 He by Himself hath sworn,
I on His oath depend;
I shall, on eagles' wings upborne,
to heaven ascend,
I shall behold His face,
I shall His pow'r adore,
and sing the wonders of His grace

4 He keeps His own secure,
He guards them by His side,
arrays in garments, white and pure,
His spotless bride:
with streams of sacred bliss,
with gross of living joys-
with all the fruits of paradise
He still supplies.

5 Before the great Three-One
they all exulting stand;
and tell the wonders He hath done,
through all their land:
the list'ning spheres attend,
and swell the growing fame;
and sing, in songs which never end,
the wondrous Name.

6 The whole triumphant host
gives thanks to God on high;
"Hail, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost"
they ever cry.
Hail, Abr'ham's God and mine!
I join the heavenly lays;
all might and majesty are Thine,
and endless praise.

Composer: Hebrew melody; adapt. Meyer Lyon

Updated Format! Beginning in November of 2016, we changed the way we formatted our PowerPoint files. The font is larger and the staff lines are bolder, making the songs easier to read from a greater distance, including smaller screens/monitors in the rear of the sanctuary.

All songs digitized previous to that date are in the "older" format.
