Cursed Is The Man, Forever Cursed Don Fortner
(Tune: It Came Upon The Midnight Clear #90 CMD)
Cursed is the man, forever cursed,
Who lives beneath the law:
For it demands a perfect life,
Without the slightest flaw.
Darkness and wrath from Sinai roar
The thund'rous threat of death.
But Christ has silenced Sinai's curse
By His atoning death.
Pardon, and peace, and grace, and love,
I see in Jesus' blood,
Eternal life and glory too,
Bought by our bleeding God.
Our Savior, with His dying breath,
Prayed, "Father, now forgive!"
His bleeding wounds enforced His plea,
And ransomed sinners live!
Now, if you dare, look to the law,
And seek salvation there.
Try as you might, perish you must,
In gloom and dark despair.
I'll take my place beneath the cross.
At Jesus' feet I'll lie.
The flaming sword of justice there
Will surely pass me by!
