Neither Shall the Covenant of My Peace Be Removed

This passage of the song is a promise to shalems struggling in a time of a corrupt temple priesthood.  The mountains being taken away are the temple in the wrong hands.  The comfort given is that the covenant of peace will not be removed, the shalems' children will be taught by the Lord, and have peace, and the Lord will build a new temple for them.

The discussion here of the covenant of peace should strengthen our inference that when Christ talks about the covenant people in his sermons of 3 Nephi, he is talking about the shalems.
