Covenant Woman Lyrics

by Bob Dylan

Covenant woman
Got a contract with the Lord
Way up yonder, great will be her reward

Covenant woman
Shining like a morning star
I know I can trust you to stay the way you are

Yes, and I just got to tell you
That I do intend
To stay closer than any friend

Yes, and I just got to thank you once again
For making 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 waiting on the Lord to rebuild and fill me up

And I know that he will do it 'cause he's faithful and he's true
He must have loved me so much to send me someone as fine as you

Yes, and I just got to tell you
I do intend
To stay closer, closer than any friend

Yes, and I just got to thank you once again
For making 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

You know that we are strangers in a land we're passing through
I'll always be right by your side, I've got a covenant too

Yes, and I just got to tell you
That I do intend
To stay closer than any friend

Yes, and I just got to thank you once again
For making your prayers known
Unto heaven for me

And to you always so grateful
I will forever be
