Thomas Olivers, c.1770

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 blest.

He by himself hath sworn,

I on his oath depend,

I shall, on angel-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 Sion's sacred height

His kingdom he maintains,

And, glorious with his saints in light,

For ever reigns.

The whole triumphant host

Give thanks to God on high;

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.
