Song title: See How Eden’s Children Fell
Music: Greg de Blieck, Angus Stirrat, Ifedade Thomas
Lyrics: Greg de Blieck
CCLI no: 7127398

See how Eden’s children fell
Adam’s tale was ours as well
Ours the curse and ours the shame
Till a second Adam came


Into earth’s infernal night
God’s eternal son of light
Come that blinded eyes would see
Come to set the prisoner free


See our sentence fall on him
See his righteous light grow dim
See the Lamb for sinners slain
Vanquish death and rise again


True forgiveness, now we know
Purer than the morning snow
Rise, O saints, and gladly say
Christ has washed our sins away


Not to us, but to his name
Everlasting praise proclaim
His great glory we confess
Steadfast love and faithfulness


Shall our faith give way to fear
With our faithful Saviour near?
Strengthen now each weary limb
Run, and fix your eyes on him

We understand the gospel better when we see it in the context of history – the great sweep of God’s salvation plan, from the garden of Eden to Golgotha and onwards. We find strength and encouragement to prepare us for the challenges of today and tomorrow, and look always to our Saviour, longing for the day when He returns, or brings us finally to Himself.
