Composing for Sean: Second Draft!

I Will Make a Covenant with You
Lyrics and Music: Maureen S. O'Brien, 7/1/03


I will make a covenant with you.
Come and take Me as your own, and you will be Mine, too.
We will be one forever -- I am faithful, I am true.
I will make a covenant with you.

If you will only trust Me, I will give you all you need.
I will lead you to a land that I will make your own.
I will give you children like the stars up in the sky.
I'll live with you and love you, never leave you here alone.

And though you've spent your days in pain and shame and misery,
I will not abandon you to lie among the dead.
I will not forget you; I will come and set you free.
I'll live and die and rise for you, and make Myself your bread.

My father waits to welcome you; they've opened wide the gates --
Wine a-plenty -- Your room's ready -- won't you come and see?
Let me lead you homeward, for the feast is on the plates,
And I want you to stay with me through all eternity.

Cheese? Whine? Theological problems? Please, point 'em out!
