Remedy

“The office of the law is to show us the disease, in such a way as to show us, at the same time, no hope of cure: the office of the gospel is, to bring a remedy to those that were past hope. For as the law leaves a man to himself, it condemns him, of necessity, to death; while the gospel, bringing him to Christ, opens the gate of life.”

-John Calvin, Commentaries, on 2 Corinthians 3:7

Or, as Crowder sings it:

"He is the one
Who has saved us
He is the one
Who embraced us
He is the one who has come
And is coming again
He’s the remedy!"

-David Crowder, Remedy
