Learning a New Song: “A Thousand Generations”

As we proceed in our study of covenant theology, we will learn a new song together in anticipation of continuing the story through God's covenant with Abraham, Moses, and David - and in subsequent anticipation of the future completion of this covenant in the Day of Glory.

“A Thousand Generations” by Brenton Brown speaks of the faithfulness of God from generation to generation, gathering lyrics from Deuteronomy 7:8-11, “but it is because the Lord loves you and is keeping the oath that he swore to your fathers, that the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of slavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.  Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations, and repays to their face those who hate him, by destroying them. He will not be slack with one who hates him. He will repay him to his face.  You shall therefore be careful to do the commandment and the statutes and the rules that I command you today.” Familiarize yourselves and take to heart the words of this reassuring and truth-filled song.
