Shall we sin?

“Shall we sin because we are not under the Law”? Rom. 6:15

What, then! Shall Christians sin,
Because freed from the law?
Shall sinners, saved by grace divine,
From holiness withdraw?

Shall grace seduce the mind,
And lead the soul astray?
And souls who under grace are found,
Delight to disobey?

Great God, forbid the thought!
Preserve thy saints in love,
While Pharisees set grace at nought,
Saints shall thy ways approve.

William Gadsby, from the Gadsby Hymnal # 601
