The pro­mise of My Fa­ther’s love
Shall stand for ev­er good,

He said, and gave His soul to death,
And sealed the grace with blood.

To this dear co­ve­nant of Thy Word
I set my worth­less name;
I seal th’en­gage­ment to my Lord,
And make my hum­ble claim.

The light, and strength, and par­don­ing grace,
And glo­ry shall be mine;
My life and soul, my heart and flesh,
And all my pow­ers are Thine.

I call that le­ga­cy my own
Which Je­sus did be­queath;
’Twas pur­chased with a dy­ing groan,
And ra­ti­fied in death.

Sweet is the me­mo­ry of His name,
Who bless­ed us in His will,
And to His tes­ta­ment of love
Made His own life the seal.
