LOVE IS THE LAW
1. Spring follows winter, as sun follows rain; with thunder comes lightning,
it's always the same.
The world keeps on rolling
through day, month and year;
the sun needs no telling that daybreak is here.
2. O how I would like to be just like the sun,
O how I would like to know what must be done. It's always a struggle between right and wrong. I need you, Lord Jesus, to guide me along.
3. The promise was made
through your prophet, that we
would live by your spirit, that we would be free: laws would be written on paper no more -
our hearts are the paper and love is the law.
4. "My Spirit I leave you, although I must go, my Spirit I leave you, my peace you will know. Love one another as I have loved you.
This I have told you, this you must do."
5. We thank you, our Father, for freedom to slip, for freedom to stumble, for freedom to trip; Christ is our helper, to him I will cling.
Love is the song he has taught us to sing.
1974. The music comes from an album by British folk-rock group Steeleye Span, and is the music for a traditional song called "Copshawholme Fair". Living by the Spirit of God should look and feel markedly different from living by the law. More on that elsewhere
