1 How large the promise! how divine,
To Abra'am and his seed!
|I'll be a God to thee and thine,
|Supplying all their need.|
2 The words of his extensive love
From age to age endure;
The angel of the covenant proves,
And seals the blessing sure.
3 Jesus the ancient faith confirms
To our great fathers given;
He takes young children to his arms,
And calls them heirs of heaven.
4 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.
