Hymn 129

by
 Submission and deliverance; or, Abraham offering up his son.
Gen.
22:6, etc.
Saints, at your heav'nly Father's word Give up your comforts to the Lord; He shall restore what you resign, Or grant you blessings more divine.
So Abram with obedient hand Led forth his son at God's command; The wood, the fire, the knife, he took, His arm prepared the dreadful stroke.
"Abram, forbear!" the angel cried, Thy faith is known, thy love is tried Thy son shall live, and in thy seed Shall the whole earth be blest indeed.
" Just in the last distressing hour Tie Lord displays deliv'ring power; The mount of dauger is the place Where we shall see surprising grace.
