When Adam fell, he plunged the world in sin;
The serpent roamed the Earth to blind us all,
Corrupting ev’rything he found therein
And brought decay and death with sickened pall.
When we are born, we are so innocent,
But all around us sin does permeate;
We reach an age to choose our own descent,
And in the course of time we take the bait.
Infected now, we can’t approach God’s throne,
But with His love He offers us a chance,
A sacrifice by which we may atone;
If we believe the Lamb we will advance.
In sin we all fall short of Heaven’s gate,
But Jesus died for us to change our fate.
For all have sinned,
and come short of the glory of God.
