A Hymn: Love is the Fulfilling of the Law

Author:

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

The Composed Song

1. Love is fulfilling the law

Because it works no ill

If you do love your neighbor

You won’t be able to harm him

Thou shall not be able to steal

Covet things belonging to him

Neither think ‘bout manslaughter

‘Cause love dwell inside of you.


2. Love is fulfilling the law

Because it works no ill

Cannot commit adultert

Neither think ‘bout fornication

Nor will he bear false witness

Conspire ‘gether or envy

‘Cause its fulfilling the law

And it is a holy law


3. Love is fulfilling the law

Because it works no ill

To know the greatest ‘mong the laws

The lawyer goeth to Jesus

Ask which is the great ‘mandment

Amongst all of the laws

He answers that loving God

And neighbor is the great commandment


4. Love is fulfilling the law

Because it works no ill

It does suffereth long for one

And it is also kind

It does not vaunteth itself

Neither seek its own alone

Rejoices not in iniquity

But rejoices in the truth


5. Love is fulfilling the law

Because it works no ill

Therefore put ye on the love

Which is the girdle of perfection

Ye should forbear for one ‘nother

And forgive ye one another

As Christ has even done for you

Likewise do ye ‘to one another
