FAITH AND LOVE
(Tune: The Son of God Goes Forth To War #412 CMD)
"Love one another," Jesus said,
"Even as I loved you;
By this shall all the world know
You're my disciples true."
The law that rules God's family
Is written not in stone
But in the hearts of His elect,
It's faith and love alone.
By faith we give that righteousness
Demanded by the law,
The righteousness and blood of Christ
For us fulfill the law!
By love the spirit of the law
Is fulfilled in God's sons:
The Spirit gives this faith and love
To all the chosen ones.
Great God of grace, now hear my prayer,
Give me this faith and love,
Teach me to trust Your Son alone
And show my Savior's love:
As I great mercy have received,
And great forgiveness too,
Teach me, my Lord, to follow You
And tender mercies show.
