Covenant of Christ

"Gather My saints together unto Me; those that have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice… and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I show the salvation of God" (Psalm 50:5,23).  "Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death… The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich" (Proverbs 10:2,22).  "This is the covenant that I will make… after those days, saith the Lord… I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more" (Hebrews 8:10,12).   

We see the covenant of Christ
Which He so graciously has made: 
For us our Lord was sacrificed;
By Him our ransom has been paid! 

The Lord has shown us His salvation,
This covenant that gave Him pleasure,
To rescue us from condemnation
And bless us with redemption's treasure.

Behold the Lamb of God who takes
Our sins which had condemned our soul!
This is the covenant He makes
Because our God is merciful. 

We thank You, Lord, as we explore
Your covenant by which You bless,
Removing sins forevermore
And clothing us in righteousness!
