Thus Abraham full of sacred awe




When Abrah’m, full of sacred awe,
Before Jehovah stood;
And, with a humble, fervent pray’r,
For guilty Sodom sued:


With what success, what wond’rous grace,
Was his petition crown’d!
The Lord would spare, if in that place
Ten righteous men were found.


And could a single holy, soul.
So rich a boon obtain?
Great God, and shall a nation pray,
And plead with thee in vain?


Still we are thine—we bear thy name;
Here yet is thine abode:
Long has thy presence bless’d our land—
Forsake us not, O God!

Thus Abrah’m, full of sacred awe,
Before Jehovah stood;
And, with a humble, fervent pray’r,
For guilty Sodom sued:
