Abraham: by Sufjan Stevens

Abraham's offering of Isaac

Abraham, worth a righteous one
Take up on the wood
Put it on your son
Lake or lamb
There is none to harm
When the angel came
You had raised your arm

Abraham, put off on your son
Take instead the ram
Until Jesus comes

* These lyrics are from the song “Abraham” from Sufjan Stevens’ album “Seven Swans”
