HYMN 113

C. M.

Abraham's blessing on the Gentiles. Gen. 17:7; Rom. 15:8; Mk 10:14.

How large the promise, how divine,

To Abram and his seed!

"I'll be a God to thee and thine,

Supplying all their need."

The words of his extensive love

From age to age endure;

The Angel of the cov'nant proves,

And seals the blessing sure.

Jesus the ancient faith confirms,

To our great fathers giv'n;

He takes young children to his arms,

And calls them heirs of heav'n.

Our God, how faithful are his ways!

His love endures the same;

Nor from the promise of his grace

Blots out the children's name.
