“The God of Abram praise, Who reigns enthroned above”

A hymn written by T. Olivers


The God of Abram 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 blest.


The God of Abram 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.


The God of Abram praise,
     Whose all-sufficient grace
Shall guide me all my happy days
   In all His ways:
He calls a worm His friend!
     He calls Himself my God!
And He shall save me to the end
   Through Jesus' blood.


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.
