 Carol's Journey

Law or Grace

Are you living under the Law
Hoping it will cover your flaws?
Or are you saved by God's grace
Knowing He died in your place?

The Law takes work on your part
Doing good things is where it starts
Grace is God's unmerited favor
When He becomes your Savior

God gave the Law only as a guide
To show man his depravity inside
Apart from God, there is no hope
Sin ties you up like knots on a rope

Sin is like a cancer to your soul
Only Jesus can make you whole
He is the cure to all of your pain
Peace in your life you will gain

The Law cannot save from sin
Man's heart is wicked within
Only in Jesus is there victory
Over death for all of eternity

The choice is left up to you
To decide what you will do
The Law leads to a dead end
Grace is Jesus as your Friend

James 2:10 (NIV)
For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles
at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.

Ephesians 1:7 (NIV)
In Him we have redemption through His blood,
the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches
of His grace.
