Covenant Promises

Don Fortner

(Tune: #414 Am I a Soldier? -- CM)

The covínant of Godís sovíreign grace,

††† (Eternal, changeless, free!)

††† Was made with Jesus Christ our Head

††† In old eternity.

 

 

And all those covínant promises

††† Of Godís salvation free

††† Are made secure to Godís elect

††† By His all-wise decree.

 

 

ďI will be theirs,Ē the Father said,

††† ďAnd they shall all be Mine.

††† Iíll pardon their iniquities,

††† And blot out every crime!Ē

 

 

Our Suríty, by His precious blood,

††† The lawís demands fulfilled,

††† And sends His Holy Spirit now

††† All covínant grace to seal.

 

 

From hence our daily comforts flow,

††† A balm for every need;

††† And grace experienced confirms

††† ††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††Each promise true indeed!
