Covenant Woman

Covenant woman got a contract with the Lord

Way up yonder, great will be her reward.

Covenant woman, shining like a morning star,

I know I can trust you to stay where you are.

.

And I just got to tell you

I do intend

To stay closer than any friend.

I just got to thank you

Once again

For making your prayers known

Unto heaven for me

And to you, always, so grateful

I will forever be.

.

I've been broken, shattered like an empty cup.

I'm just waiting on the Lord to rebuild and fill me up

And I know He will do it 'cause He's faithful and He's true,

He must have loved me so much to send me someone as fine as you.

.

And I just got to tell you

I do intend

To stay closer than any friend.

I just got to thank you

Once again

For making your prayers known

Unto heaven for me

And to you, always, so grateful

I will forever be.

.

Covenant woman, intimate little girl

Who knows those most secret things of me that are hidden from the world.

You know we are strangers in a land we're passing through.

I'll always be right by your side, I've got a covenant too.

.

And I just got to tell you

I do intend

To stay closer than any friend.

I just got to thank you

Once again

For making your prayers known

Unto heaven for me

And to you, always, so grateful

I will forever be.
