XXVI. Abraham's Rejoicing

1 "God will provide," the Patriarch said,
And faith gives ev'ry doubt away;
Fearless he climbs Moriah's mound,
And sees afar Christ Jesus' day:

2 Yes! God provides, and God accepts
His sacrifice, and his alone:
No blood of beasts, not Abraham's son,
Nor ought, save Christ, can e'er atone.

3 Ten thousand blessings crown the Lamb,
The Lamb of God that once was slain:
Behold he lives, he intercedes,
And ransom'd nations shout Amen.
