"ABRAHAM"

Oooooh, Abraham. Oooooh, Abraham.

Verse 1
Abraham, oh Abraham, you had your darkest hour.
Your only one, your promised son, to you was like a flower.
Your life and joy were in that boy, the one with the curly head.
But you laid him down upon the ground, and counted him as good as dead.

Oooooh, Abraham. Oooooh, Abraham.

Verse 2
But God was pleased, and when you agreed to sacrifice the boy,
An angel said, “Thou fearest God, let him live, and rejoice!"

Chorus 1
How it must've torn your heart in two, what you were asked to do.
But you knew you'd make it through;
Whatever God would do, it could only be in love, that you knew.

Verse 3
Abraham, oh, Abraham, trusting all the while.
By faith you held on to God's Word, endured the fiery trial.

Chorus 2
So God returned your heart's desire,
Assured that He had first place.
And He was proud of you, dear Abraham.
You learned through any task,
Whatever God may ask, He'll give the grace.

Chorus 3
Oh Lord, help us all to be like Abraham,
Who heard your voice and made his choice, by faith he took his stand.
I delight, oh Lord, to do Thy will, and when it comes my time,
Oh Abraham, I wanna be a man just like you!

I wanna be a man like you.
Abraham
Abraham
Abraham
Abraham
Abraham
Abraham
