Pleading the Covenant

O Lord my God, whose sovereign love

Published in 10 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O Lord my God, whose sov'reign love
Is still the same, nor e'er can move
Look to the covenant, and see,
Has not thy love been shown to me?
Remember me, my dearest friend,
And love me alway to the end.

2 Be with me still, as heretofore,
And help me forward more and more;
My Strong, my stubborn will incline
To be obedient still to thine;
O lead me by thy gracious hand,
And guide me safe to Canaan's land.
