Children can easily understand the special covenant God made with Abraham when we focus on this line from scripture, spoken by Abraham, “Surely the Lord is in this place.” As children learn this song, they will internalize the truth that as they follow God, they can say the same thing Abraham did, that, “Surely the Lord is in this place,” with them.

(Vocal & Piano)
A covenant was given a long time ago
To Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
God promised to bless them and their families,
We know, if they would be steadfast and faithful.
And like Jacob of old, we will do God’s will,
For we’re part of the house of Israel.
Surely the Lord is in this place.
Surely He’ll bless us with His grace.
The covenant will keep us safe in His care.
Wherever I am, He is there.
A covenant comes from our Father above,
A promise that goes both directions.
It binds us to Him
And His unfailing love,
And step by step, leads up to heaven.
So beautiful! So love how I can use it in Sunday school for teaching. God bless you and your family for sharing it
