When Abram was a boy the years were long,
As ours might be, did we for every hour
Extract the good and realise the power,
And train the notes to everlasting song.

And Abram was a comely youth, and strong,
And nimbly 'mid the silky reeds he trod,
When he resolved - 'the Lord shall be my God',
And knew the only God can do no wrong.

Had he not felt that God is God alone,
As holy, as almighty, and all-seeing, -
Foul were his sin, that would with blood atone,

And court the favour of unselfish Being.
But long experience taught him God was true,
And could the life he took by grace renew.
