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.
When men the offered help disdain
And willfully in sin remain,
Its terror in their ear resounds
And keeps their wickedness in bounds.
To those who help in Christ have found
And would in works of love abound
It shows what deeds are his delight
And should be done as good and right.
