David made a covenant with Jonathan A promise of trust, the spilling of blood Slaughter the heifer, walk between two parts Off with my head if I break the oath.
Mephibosheth Blood covenant
Jonathan died in battle David, ascend to the throne Mephibosheth a cripple Son of Jonathan lost Left behind as they fled Oath of death upon David's head
The search went out for Mephibosheth Caught, imprisoned, cursing rebel Brought before King David's throne Thought that death was imminent David remembers the covenant oath He'll show kindness to Jonathan's house Seen as now the son of the king All that was Saul's would now be his
You are Mephibosheth David, symbolic of God Your resisting His throne The blessing of the blood covenant Christ died for you, you don't even know
