Lyrics:

COVENANT CHILD

Words and music by Mary Rose Jensen

Covenant child, water comes as a sign Of the washing and cleansing renewing your mind. Covenant child, you are claimed as God’s own. You are one of His people. His church is your home.

Covenant child, you are here by God’s grace, By the work of our Savior, Who died in your place. Covenant child, you are living in Christ. Buried with Him in suffering, with Him you will rise

Covenant child, we are praying for you. May you stay close to Jesus in all that you do. Covenant child, grow strong in the faith. Seek after God’s wisdom and walk in His way.
