Love Your holy law, my God,

II love it in my heart;

And if I could I would obey

In spirit every part.

Your law is holy, just and good,

All perfect and all true;

But I'm a weak and sinful wretch:

Its works I cannot do.


And, yet, Your law condemns me not,

It's all been satisfied,

By Your own Son, my Substitute,

When He for sinners died!

In life Christ brought in righteousness,

Such as the law required:

In death He bore Your dreadful wrath,

And there the curse expired!


And now Your law's become my friend,

Demanding my release:

It points to Jesus slain for me,

And gives me perfect peace.

By faith in Jesus Christ I'm free,

From condemnation free!

For all Your law requires of me,

Christ Jesus is my plea!
