Galatian Stanzas

epistle to the galatians

“For freedom Christ has set me free,”

free to live in Him.

The Law demanded righteousness

and cursed my dreadful sin.

The Law demanded sinlessness

but I could not comply.

God’s holiness could accept nothing less

but that one should come to die.

A helpless wretch that I was,

God would be more than just

If He left me in my disgrace.

Aye! but in His good pleasure

His grace came down

And on the cross he took my place.
