Westminster Larger Catechism in modern English question number thirty:

Q. 30. Does God leave all mankind to perish in the state of sin and misery?

A. God does not leave all people to perish in the state of sin and misery into which they fell by the breach of the first covenant (which is commonly called the Covenant of Works), but from His love and mercy alone He delivers his elect out of the state of sin and misery, bringing them into a state of salvation by the second covenant (which is commonly called the Covenant of Grace).
