    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.
