The Lord woke Abraham one night,
And told the man to take
The promised Isaac his one son,
To kill for GOD’s great sake.
Then Abraham his son did take;
The boy was unaware,
He calmly walked the mountain steep;
His son did not despair.
But as he raised the deadly knife
His only son to slay,
“Don’t kill the boy!” The Lord called down
In bright and shining ray.
Christ JESUS offered up himself
Like Isaac Abr’ms son;
And shining forth He rose again,
And conquered all our sins.
