The Law commands and makes us know What duties to




The Law commands and makes us know
What duties to our God we owe;
But ítis the Gospel must reveal
Where lies our strength to do His will.


The Law discovers guilt and sin
And shows how vile our hearts have been;
The Gospel only can express
Forgiving love and cleansing grace.


What curses doth the Law denounce
Against the man that fails but once!
But in the Gospel Christ appears,
Pardoning the guilt of numerous years.


My soul, no more attempt to draw
Thy life and comfort from the Law.
Fly to the hope the Gospel gives;
The man that trusts the promise lives.


---Alternative verses---


The Law discovers guilt and sin
And shows how vile our hearts have been;
Only the Gospel can express
Forgiving love and cleansing grace.
