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

B. Wallin                                                    L.M.

1
Rejoice, ye saints, in every state,
Divine decrees remain unmoved;
No turns of providence abate
God’s care for those he once has loved.

2
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.

3
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.

4
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!
