Stability of Covenant. Ps. 89. 28; Isa. 54. 9, 10

B. Wallin                                                    L.M.

Rejoice, ye saints, in every state,
Divine decrees remain unmoved;
No turns of providence abate
God’s care for those he once has loved.

Firmer than heaven his covenant stands,
Though earth should shake and skies depart.
You’re safe in your Redeemer’s hands,
Who bears your names upon his heart.

Our Surety knows for whom he stood
And gave himself a sacrifice:
The souls once sprinkled with his blood,
Possess a life that never dies.

Though darkness spread around our tent,
Though fear prevail and joy decline,
God will not of his oath repent:
Dear Lord, thy people still are thine!
