1 To walk the way of Abraham:
should that make us afraid?
'Go to the land that I will show'
God called, and he obeyed.

2 To have the faith of Abraham:
can such things be achieved?
'Father of nations you shall be'
God spoke, and he believed.

3 To pray the prayer of Abraham
is to be called God's friend
'Will not the Judge of earth do right?'
On his word we depend.

4 To join the race of Abraham
we trust what God has said:
so things impossible shall be,
for God can raise the dead.

5 To know the God of Abraham:
that is to know the name
of him who truly said 'Before
Abraham was, I am!'
