                        -----------

                VERSE1
                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.

                CHORUS
                Mephibosheth
                Blood covenant

                VERSE2
                Jonathan died in battle
                David, ascend to the throne
                Mephibosheth a cripple
                Son of Jonathan lost
                Left behind as the fled
                Oath of death upon David's head

                CHORUS (repeat)

                BRIDGE
                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 Saul's would now be his

                VERSE3
                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

                CHORUS (repeat)
