“As soon as he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.”     1 Samuel 18:1 ESV

Jonathan, first born son of King Saul

A humble soul lovingly knit to another

Jesus, God’s only Son, given for us all

My soul’s Guardian and great Shepherd 

The prince made a covenant before the Lord

He pleaded with his father David’s life to keep

Ours is the new covenant in the Savior’s blood

He intercedes for us with groanings so deep 

A brother forever, loyal, brave and true

Gifting his robe, armor, bow, belt and sword 

Jesus promises whatever we ask, he will do

When we pray according to His Word

Swifter than an eagle, stronger than a lion

The Philistines were given into his hand

God’s Provision for salvation comes out of Zion

Against His Righteousness no evil can stand

Jonathan fought well and in battle he died 

His life’s legacy is one of love and loyalty 

Christ Jesus saves us by his supreme sacrifice 

His resurrection our sure hope for all eternity!

“But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,”      John 1:12 ESV
