God’s Covenant of Grace!

path
The way, the truth and the life!

God in his covenant of grace,
The broken chord he wills to mend;
His chosen people from out the race,
Man again becomes God’s best friend.

God’s covenant life in man restored,
Once more it echoes and vibrates;
The broken chord repaired and tuned,
Echoing friendship wonderful, sweet.

God’s covenant love has been revealed,
Reflecting the life of God Triune;
Pulsing through man, his soul, and mind,

Responding to God his true companion.

God’s formed his covenant in Jesus Christ,
Of God, through God, to God himself;
As sure as sure, man finds his rest,
In God Triune’s free grace and life.

God willed his covenant for man to see,
Encircled in the glow of love;
Arousing in man the desire to be,
Redeemed by grace, and with God to live.

Adam’s Sin & God’s Free Grace!

path
The way, the truth and the life!

God’s friend Adam failed the test,
History since, well you know the rest;
He got the good but chose the bad,
His state now in Eden was very sad.

Under the influence tempted and drawn,
God’s love he wilfully decided to spurn;
Turned by the enemy, defected from God,
God’s covenant in tatters, a broken bond.

Adam’s free choice, the choice of his will,
Brought death by his sin, the whole race would kill,
Yet God is greater than man’s wilful choice,
When Adam fell he heard Jesus’ voice.

God’s covenant friendship with sinful man,
On a treacherous Adam, he does not lean;
Out of his sovereign grace through his Son,

A covenant of grace, a much greater plan.

Mankind left in darkness, and dead in his sin,
Heirs to salvation by grace are being won;
Born of God’s Spirit and united again,
Salvation and life that never shall end.

Restored to communion with God as his friend,
Right from the beginning what God did intend;
The fruit of his covenant of grace in Christ,
Salvation, salvation by his sovereign grace!

The Cosmic Christ!

path
The way, the truth and the life!


A sovereign Christ I have,
He rose up from the dead;
He shed his blood to save,
And now the price is paid.

He sits upon his throne,
Up high in heaven above;
O’er sin and hell he’s won,
For all that him will love.

The cosmic Christ his rule,
Is right across the board;
In heaven and earth and over all,
Jesus Christ is Lord.

Fear not, fear not my people,
I work things for your good;
Doubt not that I am able,
To bring you back to God.

He’s Alpha and Omega,
The first the very last;
God and Christ, Jehovah,
His steadfast love’s the best.
