Remember the Covenant (Tennyson)

He put away His weapons of warfare:
The fountains of the deep, rains from the skies;
He set, in clouds, His bow before all eyes,
Aimed Selfward, His cov’nant He prepared
To remember.

He shoved aside the waters of the Sea,
Laid bare a road through Jordan’s muddy flood;
Credential-stones piled up in future would
Explain His goodness to posterity–
To remember.

The blesséd, broken Loaf He gave to eat:
The blesséd, bloody Cup He gladly served
To prove to us His will can’t be deterred,
To show to us that He will never cease
To remember.
