Verses 11,12

By faith the handmaid of the Lord,

Sarah, received a power unknown;

She judged Him faithful to His word;

Barren and old, she bore a son.

Nature had lost its genial power,

And Abraham was old, in vain:

Impossibilities are o’er,

If faith assent, and God ordain.

He glorified JEHOVAH’S name;

(God spake the word, it must be done)

Father of nations he became,

And multitudes sprang forth from one.

From one old man the race did rise,

A barren womb the myriads bore,

Countless as stars that deck the skies,

As sands that crown the ocean-shore.
