Hymn Noah's Covenant

This hymn reflects on God's covenant with Noah and compares it with the eternal covenant in Christ that saves sinners.

332 God’s Covenant with Noah CM
Gen 9:9-11



THE fertile earth shall be no more
With waters overflowed,
’Twas thus Jehovah said and swore,
And he will make it good.

2 With fury oft the ocean flows
And threatens havoc round;
But still the mighty ocean knows
Its predetermined bound.

3 God’s covenant with his people made,
Is equally secure;
The promises in Christ their head,
Shall firm as heaven endure.

4 His solemn oath he’ll never break,
Nor will his truth remove;
Th’eternal God will not forsake
The objects of his love.

5 Though sin and death their forces join,
The feeble to annoy
God will protect by power divine
And sin and death destroy.
