419 (8.8.8.8.D) William Gadsby

The gospel's the law of the Lamb;

My soul of its glories shall sing;

With pleasure my tongue shall proclaim

The law of my Saviour and King;

A sweet law of liberty this;

A yoke that is easy and mild;

Of love it the precious law is,

Unknown unto all but a child.

Its beauties all center in Christ,

For Christ is the substance of it;

It makes broken hearts to rejoice,

And insolvent debtors will fit.

'Tis wisdom, 'tis strength, and 'tis love,

'Tis all that a sinner can need;

And all that are born from above,

By Jesus from Moses are freed.

This law is the poor pilgrim's rule;

With boldness this truth I'll maintain;

Thrice happy's the man, though a fool,

That in it can look and remain;

This man shall be blest in his deed,

For Jesus and he are but one;

He'll therefore supply all his need,

Forever and ever. Amen.
