Speaker: Congregation

Bible Reference: Summer Conference Hymn

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.

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.

The God of Abraham praise,
Whose all-sufficient grace
Shall guide me all my happy days
In all my ways.
He is my faithful Friend,
He is my gracious 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.

There dwells the Lord our King,
The Lord our Righteousness,
Triumphant o?er the world and sin,
The Prince of Peace;
On Zion?s sacred height
His kingdom He maintains,
And glorious with His saints in light
For ever reigns.

The whole triumphant host
Hail, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!
They ever cry.
Hail, Abraham?s God, and mine!
I join the heavenly lays;
All might and majesty are Thine,
And endless praise.

Thomas Olivers 1725-99
