1 The promise of my Father's love
Shall stand for ever good:
He said, and gave his soul to death,
And seal'd the grace with blood.

2 To this dear cov'nant of thy word
I set my worthless name;
I seal th'engagement to my Lord,
And make my humble claim.

3 Thy light, and strength, and pard'ning grace,
And glory shall be mine;
My life and soul, my heart and flesh,
And all my pow'ers are thine.

4 I call that legacy my own,
Which Jesus did bequeath;
'Twas purchas'd with a dying groan,
And ratifi'd in death.

5 Sweet is the mem'ry of his name,
Who bless'd us in his will,
And to his testament of love,
Made his own life the seal.
