LAW AND GOSPEL COMPARED




Godís holy law proclaims
The wretched sinnerís state;
The least defect it loud condemns,
And still its claims repeat.


Its awful threatenings fill
The criminal with fear;
Its only work to slay and kill,
its only fruit despair.


In vain we seek to draw
Substantial comfort thence;
What comfort can a broken law
To guilty souls dispense?


But see, from Christ the Lord,
Immortal blessings flow;
His life and death new hopes afford,
Of grace and glory too.


We sow approach the throne
Of an offended God;
There make our sins and sorrow known,
And plead a Saviourís blood.
