The God of Abraham Praise (SATB a cappella)

A simple treatment of a famous Christian hymn based directly on the Sephardic version of the Hebrew Yigdal.

The tune LEONI was penned by Meyer Lyon in the late 1700s as a Christian adaptation of the Yigdal as sung in the great synagogue of London at that time. The ancient feeling of the Hebrew melody is strongly featured in this anthem.

The lyric is by Thomas Olivers, and contains a reference to the rapture, as well as scenes from the throne room of Jesus as depicted in the book of Revelation.

The God of Abraham praise,
Who reigns enthroned above;
Ancient of everlasting days,
And God of love;
To Him lift up your voice,
At whose supreme command
From earth we rise, and seek the joys
At His right hand.

There dwells the Lord our King.
The Lord our righteousness,
Triumphant o'er the world and sin,
The Prince of Peace;
On Zion's sacred height
His kingdom He maintains,
And glorious with His saints in light
Forever reigns!

(Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy!)
The God who reigns on high
The great archangels sing,
And 'Holy! Holy! Holy!' cry,
'Almighty King,
Who was, and is, the same,
And evermore shall be;
Eternal Father, great I AM,
We worship Thee.'

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!

All might and majesty are Thine,
And endless praise!

THE GOD OF ABRAHAM PRAISE, by Olivers and Lyon, arranged by Tom Kirkland for unaccompanied SATB choir, comes in a pdf file of 331K, with a nine-page score and a license page, ten pages in all. Performance time is approximately three minutes.

The majority of our sheet music pieces use electronically-produced demos on the item pages. We would much prefer to use actual recordings, so if you email us a digital recording or link to an online video and we end up using it as a demo on our site (fully credited), we will send you a coupon code good for US$25 toward your next purchase from our site.

Many of our sheet music licenses state that the purchaser does not have the right to record the work. We have modified our policy on this, and unless the license page states that you must obtain permission from a party other than to record the work, we will allow a small number (less than 50) of copies of an audio or video recording of a live performance to be made and distributed and/or posted to a free web site for viewing/listening, so long as, the composer, arranger, and lyricist are credited.

I require the music for a wedding in a couple of weeks, and didn't want to wait for music to be sent in the mail. It was great to be able to hear the music and to know the length of the PDF file and performance time."
