Seven, oath
Both apply
Water gives it life
This desert land of promise

Abraham and other patriarchs
Lived and learned
Faith and witness
God is one

Then the days
Rulers came
Worshipping things of death
Ignoring God’s claim

Promise claimed
The victory flamed
Then quickly died away
Yet ever Israel’s southern song

Change, change
Kings came
People denied
Beersheva lost its fame

Remember Christ
He knows your name
His oath to you
Will never change
