How large the promise, how divine,
To Abram and his seed!

Gen. 17:7; Rom. 15:8; Mk 10:14

How large the promise, how divine,
   To Abram and his seed!
"I’ll be a God to thee and thine,
   Supplying all their need."

The words of his extensive love
   From age to age endure;
The Angel of the cov’nant proves,
   And seals the blessing sure.

Jesus the ancient faith confirms,
   To our great fathers giv’n;
He takes young children to his arms,
   And calls them heirs of heav’n.

Our God, how faithful are his ways!
   His love endures the same;
Nor from the promise of his grace
   Blots out the children’s name.

~ Charles Wesley
