1 Come, let us use the grace divine,
And all with one accord,
In a perpetual cov'nant join
Ourselves to Christ the Lord.
2 Give up ourselves thro' Jesu's pow'r,
His name to glorify;
And promise in this sacred hour,
For God to live and die.
3 The cov'nant we this moment make
Be ever kept in mind;
We will no more our God forsake,
Or cast these words behind.
4 We never will throw off the fear.
Who hears our solemn vow;
And if thou art well pleas'd to hear,
Come down and meet us now!
5 Thee, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
let all our hearts receive;
Present with the celestial host,
The peaceful answer give.
6 To each cov'nant the blood apply
Which takes our sins away;
And register our names on high,
And keep us to that day.
