Hymn/Song Information

NO HOPE FOR THE LAW




In vain to Sinai’s mount,
In our distress we fly;
The sentence of the law is this,
The soul that sin shall die.


No plea will it regard,
No real help afford;
It bars the way to paradise,
As did the flaming sword.


It leaves us under wrath,
Unrighteous and unclean;
It neither satisfies for guilt,
Nor purifies from sin.


The gospel only shows,
The way of life and peace;
‘Tis not by works that we can do,
But we are saved by grace.
