"The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. Good understanding giveth favor: but the way of transgressors is hard" (Psalm 119:14,15).
Now let us weigh what we have heard
To see with honest measure
The transgressors against God's Word
In their pursuit of pleasure.
The very thing that they pursue
Evades them everyday.
They cannot know a peace that's true;
How hard is this their way!
The understanding God will give
Imparts His loving favor;
A fountain full of grace to live
Now flows from Christ our Savior.
The transgressor can never know
The joy we have in Christ,
Or worship Him who loved us so
When He was sacrificed.
We thank You, Lord, for truth that made
Our hearts now free indeed.
We pray Your truth may yet persuade
Transgressors of their need.
