Covenant Love Don Fortner

(Tune: When I Can Read My Title Clear — #497)


1.    Awake, my soul, and join the song,

Sung by GodÕs saints above;

No theme so well employs the tongue,

As JesusÕ covÕnant love.


2.    According to GodÕs purposed grace

In everlasting love,

The worst of AdamÕs fallen race

Are saved by covÕnant love!


3.    My SuretyÕs work, my FatherÕs word,

Forever firm shall prove;

The SpiritÕs graces all afford

Sweet proofs of covÕnant love!


4.    My life, and strength, and joy, and peace,

My hope of bliss above —

My union with the Prince of Peace,

All flow from covÕnant love!


5.    Here then IÕll rest, and live, and die

(Oh, let me not be moved!)

And when I sit with Christ on high,

IÕll sing of covÕnant love!
