“He hath made with me an everlasting covenant,
ordered in all things, and sure.”—II Samuel 23:5
Jehovah’s Covenant shall endure,
All ordered, everlasting, sure!
O child of God, rejoice to trace
Thy portion in its glorious grace.
’T is thine, for Christ is given to be
The Covenant of God to thee:
In Him, God’s golden scroll of light,
The darkest truths are clear and bright.
O sorrowing sinner, well He knew,
Ere time began, what He would do!
then rest thy hope within the veil;
His covenant mercies shall not fail.
O doubting one, the Eternal Three
Are pledged in faithfulness for thee;
Claim every promise, sweet and sure,
By covenant oath of God secure.
O waiting one, each moment’s fall
Is marked by love that planned them all;
Thy times, all ordered by His hand,
In God’s eternal covenant stand.
O feeble one, look up and see
Strong consolation sworn for thee;
Jehovah’s glorious arm is shown,
His covenant strength is all thine own.
O mourning one, each stroke of love
A covenant blessing yet shall prove;
His covenant love shall be thy stay;
His covenant grace be as thy day.
O Love that chose, O Love that died,
O Love that sealed and sanctified !
All glory, glory, glory be,
O covenant Triune God, to Thee!
