Hymn on the Ten Commandments

Ten Commandments by George vP

This hymn on the Ten Commandments is based on the explanation of the Decalogue (Ten Words) as found in Questions and Answers 92-115 of the Heidelberg Catechism. (This Reformation catechism can be viewed here: http://www.heidelberg-catechism.com/en/) One of the beauties of this Calvinistic catechism is that it explains the Decalogue as a way for Christians to show themselves thankful for the saving work of Christ. We do not obey the law of God in order to effect our salvation (a works righteousness); rather, we obey the law to show the Lord and our neighbour how thankful we are for the work that Christ fully and freely did for us.
