Speaker : Daniel Schierenbeck
John 17:17
Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.
Hymn: TLH 289, st. 1-3 : The Law Commands and Makes Us Know

1. The Law commands and makes us know
What duties to our God we owe;
But ’tis the Gospel must reveal
Where lies our strength to do his will.

2. The Law discovers guilt and sin
And shows how vile our hearts have been;
The Gospel only can express
Forgiving love and cleansing grace.

3. What curses doth the Law denounce
Against the man who fails but once!
But in the Gospel Christ appears,
Pardoning the guilt of numerous years.
