Helen Qtte (PHH 17) prepared this versification of Jeremiah 31 in 1985 at the request of the Psalter Hymnal Revision Committee so that Jeremiah's famous "new covenant" passage could be included in the Psalter Hymnal. She chose to focus on God's salvation (st. 1), God's ingathering of his people from all parts of the earth (st. 2), and God's new covenant with the people (st. 3); all of these are main focal points in Jeremiah 31.
Services focusing on renewal, profession of faith, restoration or healing, and the worldwide church and its evangelical task; also appropriate for baptism.
