VERSE 1:
The God of Abraham praise,
Who reigns enthroned above;
The Ancient of eternal days
And God of love.
The Lord, the great I Am!
By earth and heav'n confessed;
We bow before His holy name
Forever blest.

VERSE 2:
He by His name has sworn;
On this we shall depend.
And as on eagles' wings up borne,
To heav'n ascend.
There we shall see His face;
His pow'r we shall adore
And sing the wonders of his grace
Forever more.

VERSE 3:
The goodly land I see,
With peace and plenty blest;
A land of sacred liberty
And endless rest.
There milk and honey flow,
And oil and wine abound,
The tree of life forever grows
With mercy crowned.




VERSE 4:
There rules the Lord our King,
The Lord our Righteousness,
victorious over death and sin,
The Prince of Peace.
On Zion’s sacred height
His kingdom He maintains
And glorious with His saints in light
Forever reigns.

VERSE 5:
Triumphant hosts on high,
Give thanks to God and sing,
and "Holy, Holy, Holy" cry, "Almighty King!"
Hail, Abraham’s God and ours!
One mighty hymn we raise.
All pow'r and majesty be Yours
And endless praise!
