Jeremiah 31:31-34
“Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the Lord. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

8. By faith I call Thy holy Table 
The testament of Thy deep love; 
For, lo, thereby I now am able 
To see how love Thy heart doth move. 

9. What higher gift can we inherit? 
It is faith’s bond and solid base; 
It is the strength of heart and spirit, 
The covenant of hope and grace. 

11. Thy body, given for me, O Savior, 
Thy blood which Thou for me didst shed, 
These are my life and strength forever, 
By them my hungry soul is fed.
