We Are God's Covenant People


by Thomas A. Dooley

We are God's covenant people
From Abraham we came
Through Isaac and through Jacob
God's promise is retained.

For thou art holy people
Unto our God above.
The Lord chose you, oh Israel
His only covenant love.

From Jacob's seed, twelve nations came
Given unto birth
The promise of an Israel
Inheriting the earth.

They disobeyed His holy word
God valued not their bones
He scattered them in punishment
To places then unknown

All graces God could give to them
Were held back many years.
'Till Jesus died to redeem His bride
With His precious blood and tears.


To all His nations Israel
Thus saith the Lord above
I pour my grace upon thy face
And pledge my covenant love.
