Law and Gospel

Run and work the law demands but gives me neither feet nor hands.

The gospel speaks of greater things, it bids me fly and gives me wings.

 

 

I heard this poem recited by Hal Jones of Westminster Seminary on a WHI broadcast. In doing a little research there are a few other versions and each is ascribed to different authors including John Bunyan, John Berridge and Ralph Erskine.
