LAW FULFILLED IN CHRIST




Can I fulfil God’s righteous law,
Or thence a glimpse of comfort draw?
Holy and just, it far exceeds,
My highest and brightest deeds.


No ground for hope I thence derive,
Nor dare to think, “Do this and live;”
Yet I would not indulge despair,
Although I find no safety there.


A covenant form no more it bears,
No more a frowning aspect wears;
A rule of life it still remains,
And its authority retains.


Its penalties did Christ endure,
To make the promised mercy sure;
Pardon and peace abundant flow,
The law’s fulfilled and honoured too.
