Hymn 125

Play music

1 The God of Abr'ham praise,
Who reigns enthroned above,
Ancient of everlasting days,
And God of Love.
We worldly aims forsake,
The glory,fame and power;
And Him our only portion make,
Our shield and tower.
2 Though nature's strength decay,
And all on earth withstand,
We to the Kingdom urge our way
At His command.
Our pilgrimage we pass
With Jesus in our view,
And through this dreary wilderness
Our way pursue.
3 The ransomed earth we see
With peace and plenty blest;
And there in glorious liberty
Its hosts find rest.
There milk and honey flow,
And oil and wine abound,
And trees of life for ever grow
With mercy crowned.
4 Here dwells the Christ, our King,
Our Lord, our Righteousness;
Triumphant o'er the world and sin,
The Prince of Peace; On Zion's sacred height
He David's throne maintains,
And glorious with the saints in light
He lives and reigns.
5 To God who reigns on high
The Seraphim all sing
And Holy, holy,holy, cry Almighty King!
Who was,and is the same,
And evermore shall be:
“O Yahweh, God of hallowed Name,
We worship Thee.
