Great God of Abraham! hear our prayer
Let Abraham’s seed Thy mercy share;
O may they now at length return,
And look on Him they pierced, and mourn.

Remember Jacob’s flock of old;
Bring home the wanderers to Thy fold;
Remember too Thy promised word,
Israel at last shall seek the Lord.

Though outcasts still, estranged from Thee,
Cut off from their own olive tree;
Why should they longer such remain?
For Thou canst graft them in again.

Lord, put Thy law within their hearts,
And write it in their inward parts;
The veil of darkness rend in two,
Which hides Messiah from their view.

Oh! haste the day, foretold so long,
When Jew and Greek, a glo­ri­ous throng,
One house shall seek, one prayer shall pour,
And one Re­deem­er shall adore!
