Hymn/Song Information

The ancient Law departs And all its fear




The ancient Law departs,
And all its fears remove,
For Jesus makes with faithful hearts
A covenant of love.


The Light of Light Divine,
True brightness undefiled,
He bears for us the pain of sin
A holy, spotless Child.


His infant body now
Begins the cross to feel:
Those precious drops of blood that flow
For death the Victim seal.


Today the name is Thine
At which we bend the knee.
They call Thee Jesus, Child Divine;
Our Jesus deign to be.


All praise, eternal Son,
For Thy redeeming love,
With Father, Spirit, ever One
In glorious might above. Amen.
