When Jesus for His people died,
The holy law was satisfied;
Its awful penalties He bore;
It can command nor curse no more.
Amazing love how rich how freeŚ
That Christ should die for such as we;
From hence the holiest duties flow,
Of saints above and saints below.
He having suffered in their stead,
The law in cov'nant form is dead;
He rules them with a gentle sway,
And they with sweet delight obey.
