Covenant Prayer

 

Covenant Prayer


"I've written a song inspired by John Wesley's "Covenant Prayer”. It’s mind-blowing to think that Wesley's words have bridged centuries, traveled the world and even formed the prayers of my community in Denmark. This underlines the very point of the song: We belong to the eternal God no matter the time or circumstance! It's not a prayer you can pray lightly. It expresses complete surrender and commitment to Jesus - "I'm no longer my own but yours". I sing it both willingly and with trepidation.” (Arvid Asmussen)

CHORUS
I’m no longer my own, but yours
I’m no longer my own, but yours
I can rest in your love, your promise endures
I’m no longer my own, but yours

VERSE 1
Put me to what you will
Rank me with whom you will
Blessing or suffering, in every season I’ll sing

VERSE 2
I’ll be employed by you
Or laid aside for you
Exalted or brought low, in your hand, I can let go

VERSE 3
Let me be filled by you
I'll empty me out for you
All things or nothing more, you are the one I adore
