Hymn/Song Information

LAW IN THE HANDS OF CHRIST




The law no vengeance bears,
When in the hands of Christ;
He is at once our ruling king,
And all-atoning priest.


In threatenings and its curse,
No more impress with fear;
For look beneath the mercy sea,
And lo! the law is there.


Of all its terrors stripped,
It there shall still remain;
No more disturb our peace or rest,
Nor fill the mind with pain.
