Hymn/Song Information

How long beneath the law I lay In bondag




How long beneath the law I lay
In bondage and distress!
I toiled the precept to obey,
But toiled without success.


Then all my servile works were done,
A righteousness to raise;
Now, freely chosen in the Son,
I freely choose his ways.


To see the law by Christ fulfill'd,
And hear his pard'ning voice,
Will change a slave into a child,
And duty, into choice.


How long beneath the law I lay
In bondage and distress!
I toiled the precept to obey,
But toiled without success.


Then all my servile works were done,
A righteousness to raise;
Now, freely chosen in the Son,
I freely choose his ways.


To see the law by Christ fulfill'd,
And hear his pard'ning voice,
Will change a slave into a child,
And duty, into choice.
