God's Man, Faithful Abraham (Song Lyrics)

(Sung to the tune "Down by the Station")

(Scriptures: Genesis 12:1-7; 17:1-8,15-21; 22:1-19; Hebrews 11:8-12,17-19; Romans 4:16-21)


You must leave your country, go where I will show you;
This was God's commandment, told to Abraham.
Though it wasn't easy, Abraham was faithful.
God's man, faithful Abraham

You'll have many offspring, this will be their country;
This was God's own covenant, made with Abraham.
Christ was his descendant, a blessing to all nations.
God's man, faithful Abraham

You shall have your own son, when you are a hundred;
This was God's own promise, made to Abraham.
Abraham believed God, and named the child Isaac.
God's man, faithful Abraham

Make your son an offering, slay him on an altar;
This was how God tested, faithful Abraham.
Abraham was willing, so God delivered Isaac.
God's man, faithful Abraham

(c) David E. Pratte, Feb. 7, 1984 and Aug, 2009, Ft. Wayne, Indiana
