Morn breaks upon Moriah’s height!
A father and his only son,
There bow towards the rising light,
And humbly say, God’s will be done!
With trembling hand but faithful heart,
The sire binds his sinless boy;
Prepared with that sweet pledge to part,
Which he who lent would now destroy.
On Sarah, most his thoughts were bent,
When she no more should meet her child;
But mourn within her lonely tent,
For him, the pure, the undefiled.
Yet firmly Abram grasps the blade;
But ere the fatal stroke descends,
A beam hath round the victim played,
An angel o’er the altar bends!
Forbear! the test of faith is o’er;
Unbind the sacrificial cord!
Yon Heav’n provided ram secure,
To bleed and burn before the Lord.
Blow, blow the trumpet of gladness now!
God’s clemency and love confess!
Who hath fulfilled His solemn vow,
In Isaac’s seed the earth to bless.
