Of such commandments from above

Obedience – a stream of love

Presented with abundant choice

Abraham obeyed God’s voice


A promised child of such a time

A standing test now would remind

The passing time yet would not falter

Offered gifts upon the altar


To Moriah, a land away

The sacrifice yet to obey

A calling forth to bring upon

No sheep or lamb, the chosen son


With all trust not put to fault

An angel brought him to a halt

Abraham followed all his plans

Now untie his feet and hands


Due fulfilment of the test

Your descendants I will bless

Lord’s provision, for the right

Precious always in God’s sight
