What Adam’s disobedience cost
What Adam’s disobedience cost,
let holy scripture say:
mankind estranged, an Eden lost,
and then a judgement day:
each day a judgement day.
2. An ark of mercy rode the flood;
but we, where waters swirled,
rebuilt, impatient of the good,
another fallen world:
an unrepentant world.
3. And now a child is Adam’s heir,
is Adam’s hope and Lord.
Sing joyful carols everywhere
that Eden is restored:
in Jesus is restored.
4. Regained is Adam’s blessedness;
the angels sheathe their swords.
In joyful carols all confess
the kingdom is the Lord’s:
the glory is the Lord’s!
