The Law Of God

The Law of God is good and wise 

And sets his will before our eyes,     

Shows us the way of righteousness, 

And dooms to death when we transgress.

 

Its light of holiness imparts 

The knowledge of our sinful hearts      

That we may see our lost estate 

And seek escape before too late

Before too late

 

O dear Law-Giver, we’re all lawbreakers; 

Have mercy, have mercy, Lord!

O dear Law-Keeper, 

Cover us lawbreakers; 

Have mercy on us!

 

The Law is good; but since the fall 

Its holiness condemns us all;

It dooms us for our sin to die 

And has no power to justify

To justify

 

O dear Law-Giver, we’re all lawbreakers; 

Have mercy, have mercy, Lord!

O dear Law-Keeper, 

Cover us lawbreakers; 

Have mercy on us!

 

Jesus, teach us to walk in your ways, in your ways

Let us delight in your ways, in your ways 

Grace upon grace in your ways, in your ways

Jesus, teach us to walk in your ways

 

O dear Law-Giver, we’re all lawbreakers; 

Have mercy, have mercy, Lord!

O dear Law-Keeper, 

Cover us lawbreakers; 

Have mercy on us!

Have mercy on us!
