1. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost
Came down to deliver heaven’s law
They came with ten thousands of angelic host
All the children of Israel saw

Refrain

It was pomp and splendor on Mount Sinai
The scene was awesome to mortal eye
The people feared that they would die
When the God of glory descended on high

2. A fence was put for the throng
The mountain was filled with fire and smoke
The blast of the trumpet was loud and long
And in regal tones the law He spoke

3. The mount quaked, trembled and shivered
As God spoke in thunderous tone
In silence of death the people heard
And then He engraved His law on stone

4. Sin is defined as the transgression of the law
“Keep it diligently” is Heaven’s call
It’s holy, just and good, without a flaw
“He that breaketh one is guilty of all”
