For the law was given by Moses,
but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
John 1:17 KJV
The Lord gave Moses laws defining sin,
And spelled the things that man should never do,
But laws don’t teach forgiveness there within,
And do not mention grace the whole way through.
So once a year a lamb was sacrificed
To pay for all the sins men did accrue,
Then came along our Savior Jesus Christ,
To be the truth and give God’s grace to you.
He taught the way of love to all who’d hear,
And lived the fullness of God’s righteousness.
He gave His life, a sacrifice so dear,
And through this perfect Grace God’s love confess.
The substance of the shadows of the law
Lived as the Lamb of God without a flaw.
