LAW NO LONGER A COVENANT




Quite dead am I to Sinaiís law,
Nor thence my hope or comfort draw;
In precepts are exceeding broad,
Nor help nor succour they afford:
ĎTis here I see how vile Iíve been,
How deep involved in guilt and sin.


Yet as a rule the law remains,
And all its power it still retains;
But as a covenant now no more
We hear its threatenings as before;
The soul that to the cross repairs,
Escapes the curse, the blessing shares.


Then let me to my Saviour come,
And this avoid the sinners doom;
That help which Sinai cannot give,
I now from him alone derive:
The curse he bore, my life sustains,
Praise him, my soul, in grateful strains.
