Verse 1
The God of Abraham praise,
Who reigns enthroned above;
Ancient of everlasting days,
And God of love.
Jehovah, great I AM!
By earth and heaven confessed;
I bow and bless the sacred name,
For ever blessed

Verse 2
The God of Abraham 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 power ---
And Him my only portion make,
My shield and tower.

Verse 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 power adore;
And sing the wonders of His grace
For evermore.

Verse 4
Though nature's strength decay,
And earth and hell withstand,
To Canaan's bounds I urge my way
At His command.
The watery deep I pass,
With Jesus in my view;
And through the howling wilderness
My way pursue

Verse 5
The God who reigns on high
The great archangels sing;
And, Holy, holy, holy, cry,
Almighty King.
Who was and is the same,
And evermore shall be;
Jehovah, Father, Great I AM,
We worship Thee.

Verse 6
The whole triumphant host,
Give thanks to God on high;
Hail, Father, Son and Holy Ghost!
They ever cry.
Hail, Abra'am's God and mine!
I join the heavenly lays;
All might and majesty are Thine;
And endless praise.
