Father, behold! here I am
Simple servant of Thy dominion
Rising early to cleave the lightwood
Dreading each day the mountain's steady rise

Even Isaac, Father

Silent, I raise an altar
Isaac asking what lamb we offer
Father's silent and lawful answer
Steady, steady through fear and trembling

It will be provided
As you will it, Father
In Thy will
