He carved them on the tablets made of stone

A glimpse of holiness - His measure shown

To teach us that there isn't anyone

Whose righteous in His sight except the Son.

Perfection, nothing less, the Law demands

A burden and a curse are its commands

To keep them all but fail in only one

You break the whole and prove yourself undone.

He came to us a light unto the earth

To tell us of God's love and of our worth

His life fulfilled the Law, He broke not one

Lamb slain for all, the curse has been undone.

So blind, receive your sight and sing His praise

He paid your debt, be thankful all your days

Lift grateful voices high to heaven's throne

The Law's now in your heart not carved in stone.
