“Run, John, run

The law commands

But gives me neither feet nor hands

Tis better news the Gospel brings

It bids me fly

It gives me wings”*


“For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ” (John 1:17).

*As quoted by Corrie Ten Boom as she tells the amazing story how she hid Jews in the Second World War
