a friendship forever

Then Jonathan said to David, "Go in peace, because we have sworn both of us in the name of the LORD, saying, 'The LORD shall be between me and you, and between my offspring and your offspring, forever.'" And he rose and departed, and Jonathan went into the city.
1 Samuel 20:42

Two men
fast friends
tested by trial
found to be true
faithful through changes and trials.

one man
king's son
prince and warrior
brave in dark battle
tested by his father's rage

one man
God's choice
after His heart
loyal to the king
who wants him quickly dead

both men
truly led
held in covenant
faithful to God's call
will be separated by circumstances

each man
holding true
to his God
and his friend's pledge
will remain true beyond death

- Prepare your minds for action.
1 Peter 1:13
