Ancient Law Departs, The

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.
