“For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.” | 1 Corinthians 15:22
Traditional English carol
Music by Jody Killingsworth
The Lord at first did Adam make
Out of the dust and clay,
And in his nostrils breathed life,
E’en as the Scriptures say.
And then in Eden’s Paradise
He placed him to dwell,
That he within it should remain
To dress and keep it well.
And then within the garden he
Commanded was to stay,
And unto him in covenant
These words the Lord did say:
“The fruit which in the garden grows
To thee shall be for meet,
Except the tree in the midst thereof,
Of which thou shalt not eat.”
“For in the day that thou shalt eat,
Or to it then come nigh;
For if that thou dost eat thereof
Then surely thou shalt die.”
But Adam he did take no heed
Unto that only thing,
But did transgress God’s holy law,
And so was wrapt in sin.
Now mark the goodness of the Lord
Which He for mankind bore,
His mercy soon He did extend,
Lost man for to restore;
And then for to redeem our souls
From death and hellish thrall,
He said his own dear Son should be
The Savior of us all.
