The Covenant

Aug 2018    

His Word, verse and hymns of praise,
Bear testament to God and his godliness
Our souls rest on the peace He brings
Christ has risen and Christ has come

Oh how sweet the surrender, how light the yoke
Come into the garden, his heavenly kingdom
For those whom the Spirit hath awoken
What price honour; in silence peace reigneth

Glory godly glory, to our one true King
Holy holy holy, sweet hosannas ring
Hearts of fire with eyes ablaze
We tremble no longer, at his might
Exult, exalt, He hath cometh
Ne’er such joyous sound, to praise His Name!

We hail our friends with laughter and smiles
“Love thy neighbour” hath truly come round
In unity as one Body, One Spirit, of Christ
