Covenant woman, got a contract with the lord
Way up yonder, great will be her reward
Covenant woman shinin' like a mornin' star
I know i can trust you to stay the way you are.

An' i just got to tell you i intend / that i do intend
To stay closer than any friend
An' i just got to thank you once again
For makin' your prayers known unto heaven for me
And to you, always, so grateful i will forever be.

I've been broken, shattered like an' empty cup
I'm just awaiting on the lord to rebuild an' fill me up
An' i know that he will do it 'cause he's faithful an' he's true
He must have loved me all so much to send me someone as fine as you.

An' i just got to tell you that i intend / i do intend
To stay closer than any friend
An' i just got to thank you once again
For makin' your prayers known unto heaven for me
And to you, always, so grateful i will forever be.

Covenant woman, intimate little girl
Who knows those most secret things of me that are hidden from the world
  / Who sees invisible things that are hidden from the world
She knows / You know that we are strangers in a land we 're passin' thru
I'll always be right by your side, i got a covenant too.

An' i just gotta tell you that i do intend
To stay closer than any friend
An' i just want/got to thank you once again
For makin' your prayers known unto heaven for me
And to you, always, so grateful i will forever be.  up
