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


50 Years Of Songs -Postponed!

 

Last year in August we celebrated 50 years of songs.

A great night at Concordia College in Adelaide.

Nearly $7,000 was raised for ALWS's GRACE PROJECT, for the education of refugee children.

Robin & Dorothy, with the help of Thom Mann & friends, were planning to be at Luther College Chapel in Croydon, Melbourne on June 6 to sing & play the songs that Robin's written over the past half century.

However, just when things seemed to be organizing well, the COVID-19 threat grows & grows. So we decided that we won't be in Victoria in June.  Hopefully, if the virus is contained or minimized, we might make it later in the year.
