Legalism is distasteful, cruel, and mean,
It’s deceptive and luring in how it’s seen.
It seems right to men, but its end is death,
It’s a false hope with no rest.
It’s very appealing to the unlearned eye,
Then there’s bondage in hopes to die.
But the light it shines ever so bright,
Legalism can’t stand in His sight.
Lies are exposed and truth is revealed,
Freedom is found and salvation is sealed.
Healing is received and Jesus is seen,
Joy is expressed by the redeemed.
The Law was nailed to the cross of Christ,
Satan was defeated as Jesus paid our price.
Forgiveness is now provided once and forevermore,
Legalism, you’ve been crushed by the eternal Savior.
