God remembered His covenant even if the people didn’t. Good thing His memory is better than ours.

22 And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Lord, wherefore hast thou so evil entreated this people? why is it that thou hast sent me? 23 For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in thy name, he hath done evil to this people; neither hast thou delivered thy people at all.(KJV)

     1 Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land. 2 And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD: 3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them. 4 And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers. 5 And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant. 6 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments: 7 And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. 8 And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for an heritage: I am the LORD. 9 And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel: but they hearkened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage.(KJV)

1. Baptized into Thy name most holy, 
O Father, Son and Holy Ghost, 
I claim a place, though weak and lowly, 
Among Thy seed, Thy chosen host. 
Buried with Christ and dead to sin, 
Thy Spirit now shall live within. 

2. My loving Father, Thou dost take me 
To be henceforth Thy child and heir; 
My faithful Savior, Thou dost make me 
The fruit of all Thy sorrows share; 
Thou, Holy Ghost, wilt comfort me 
When darkest clouds around I see. 

3. And I have vowed to fear and love Thee 
And to obey Thee, Lord, alone; 
Because the Holy Ghost did move me, 
I dared to pledge myself Thine own, 
Renouncing sin to keep the faith 
And war with evil unto death. 

4. My faithful God, Thou failest never, 
Thy covenant surely will abide; 
Oh, cast me not away forever 
Should I transgress it on my side! 
Though I have oft my soul defiled, 
Do Thou forgive, restore, Thy child. 

5. Yea, all I am and love most dearly 
I offer now, O Lord, to Thee, 
Oh, let me make my vows sincerely 
And help me Thine own child to be! 
Let naught within me, naught I own, 
Serve any will but Thine alone. 

6. And never let my purpose falter, 
O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, 
But keep me faithful to Thine altar 
Till Thou shalt call me from my post, 
So unto Thee I live and die 
And praise Thee evermore on high.
