Hymn 316Play music
1 Great God of Abr'ham, hear our prayer:
Let Abram's seed Thy mercy share:
Oh may they now at length return,
And look on him they pierced, and mourn
2 Remember Jacob's flock of old;
Bring home the wand'rers to Thy fold;
Remember, too, Thy promised word,
Israel at last shall seek the Lord
3 Though outcasts still, estranged from Thee,
Cut off from their own olive tree,
and Let them no longer such remain,
Oh! Thou canst graft them in again.
4 Lord, put Thy law within their hearts,
And write it in their inward parts;
The veil of darkness rend in two
Which hides Messiah from their view.
5 O Haste the day, foretold so long,
When Jew and Greek (a glorious throng)
One house shall seek, one prayer shall pour,
And one Redeemer shall adore.
