The Ancient Law Departs – And All Its Terrors Cease

 


 
 

The ancient law departs,
And all its terrors cease;
For Jesus makes with faithful hearts
A covenant of peace.

The Light of Light divine,
True brightness undefiled,
He bears for us the shame of sin,
A holy, spotless Child.

His infant body now
Begins our pains to feel;
Those precious drops of blood that flow
For death the victim seal.

Today the Name is Thine,
At which we bend the knee;
They call Thee Jesus, Child divine!

Our Jesus deign to be.
