Hymn/Song Information

The law of God is good and wise




The law of God is good and wise,
And sets His will before our eyes,
Shows us the way of righteousness,
And dooms to death
when we transgress.


Its light of holiness imparts
The knowledge of our sinful hearts,
That we may see our lost estate
And seek deliverance ere too late.


To those who help
in Christ have found
And would in works of love abound
It shows what deeds are His delight
And should be done
as good and right.


When men the offered help disdain
And wilfully in sin remain,
Its terror in their ear resounds
And keeps their
wickedness in bounds.


The law is good, but since the fall
Its holiness condemns us all;
It dooms us for our sin to die
And has no power to justify.


To Jesus we for refuge flee,
Who from the curse has set us free,
And humbly worship at His throne,
Saved by His grace
through faith alone.
