Hymn Text: Adam’s Fall

Date: May 29th, 2017
Title: Adam’s Fall
Meter: 7 7 7 7 7 7
Topic: the Fall ofAdam, Adam and Eve, agency

1.
In the garden Adam fell
Also did his wife as well.
They transgressed God’s holy law,
But the plan was not a flaw.
They both used their agency—
Adam fell that men might be.

2.
In this fallen world they stayed
And so for forgiveness prayed.
Which then brought a change within.
That they could be cleansed from sin.
As their children we don’t share
Their sins, our own beware.

3.
In this life we too will live,
If we but learn to forgive,
And repent for our own deeds,
As we see to others’ needs.
Adam’s curse won’t on us fall
For Jesus redeemed us all.

Lord, give us of Thy living bread
Or for hunger we will faint.

That can make each one a saint.

With Thee, we find an end to grief.

Or else we will sink with thirst.
Let it refresh the way we think
So that we may put the first.

How blessed is Thy great relief.

With Thee, we find an end to grief.

3.
Lord, give us of Thy cleansing fire
Or corruption will us take.
May we and Thee have one desire
As we Thy spirit partake.

How great our hunger and our thirst!
How blessed is Thy great relief.
Without Thee we are but accursed
With Thee, we find an end to grief.

How blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God’s face.
And for eternity take part
Of glory in His place.

The coldest, bitter rain.

At each word that God speaks.
When He His humble servants sends
Or grace in prayer He seeks.

Blessed are those with open hearts,
Who let the Savior in.
He’s written on their inmost parts,
And they abhor all sin.

Once He’s within, the Savior can
Our stony hearts replace
With one unlike the natural man
Reborn through saving grace.
