yes they did

and that is correct. I would hesitate to say the Constitution "is" natural law, though. It has many influences, such as the history and culture of the colonies, the popularity of Adam Smith's economics concepts at the time, the traditions of the people involved, etc. There is imperfection there but at least it recognized that government is inherently incompetent and often evil, and should be limited.
