“An everlasting covenant.” 2 Sam. 23. 5

J. Kent           C.M.

1
Come, saints, and sing in sweet accord,
With solemn pleasure tell,
The covenant made with David’s Lord;
In all things ordered well.

2
This covenant stood ere time began,
That God with man might dwell;
Eternal wisdom drew the plan;
In all things ordered well.

3
This covenant, O believer, stands,
Thy rising fears to quell;
Sealed by thy Surety’s bleeding hands;
In all things ordered well.

4
’Twas made with Jesus, for his bride,
Before the sinner fell;
’Twas signed, and sealed, and ratified;
In all things ordered well.

5
When rolling worlds depart on fire,
And thousands sink to hell,
This covenant shall the saints admire;
In all things ordered well.

6
In glory, soon, with Christ their King,
His saints shall surely dwell;
And this blest covenant ever sing;
In all things ordered well.
