Isaac Watts revised

Awhile back I reworked a Watts song that I found while working on a paper for Moody.   I’m posting the lyrics so I can find it again if I need to.

The Law commands and makes us know 

What duties to our God we owe;

But tis the gospel must reveal

where lies the strength to do His will.

The Law discovers our guilt and our sin

And shows how vile our hearts have been

The gospel alone can express

Forgiving love and cleansing grace.

 O praise Him, our Jesus,

Our Savior and Giver of grace

O praise Him, hallelujah,

O how we long to see His face.

What a curse does the Law pronounce

Against the man that fails but once.

In the gospel Christ appears

Pardoning the sin of numerous years.

My soul no more attempt to draw

Thy life and comfort from the Law

Fly to the hope the gospel gives

The man that trusts the Promise lives
