Support in the Covenant. 2 Sam. 23. 5; Ps. 25. 14

P. Doddridge                                            C.M.

1
’Tis mine, the covenant of his grace,
And every promise mine;
All flowing from eternal love,
And sealed by blood divine.

2
On my unworthy, favoured head,
Its blessings all unite;
Blessings more numerous than the stars,
More lasting and more bright.

3
That covenant the last accent claims
Of this poor faltering tongue;
And that shall the first notes employ
Of my celestial song.
