He that covereth a transgression seeketh love,
but he that repeateth a matter separateth friends.

The God of Abraham Praise
The God of Abraham praise, Who reigns enthroned above; Ancient of everlasting days, and God of love. Jehovah, great I AM, by earth and heav’n confessed; I bow and bless the sacred Name, forever blest.
The God of Abraham praise, at Whose supreme command from earth I rise, and seek the joys at His right hand. I all on earth forsake, its wisdom, fame, and pow’r; and Him my only portion make, my shield and tow’r.
He by Himself hath sworn, I on His oath depend; I shall, on eagles’ wings upborne, to heav’n ascend; I shall behold His face, I shall His pow’r adore, and sing the wonders of His grace forevermore.
The whole triumphant host give thanks to God on high; “Hail, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!” they ever cry. Hail, Abraham’s God, and mine! I join the heav’nly lays; all might and majesty are Thine, and endless praise.
