Of all God’s promises, this one was first
Yet generations continue to thirst
That old serpent was deceptively wise
And taunted Eve with his masterful lies
Sin entered the world, its wages are death
But Christ prevailed when He took his last breath
Trampled underfoot, the serpent is bruised
The evil one stands forever accused
Our forefathers saw Christ afar and believed
The Blessed Hope they embraced and received
By Abraham’s faith he was justified
He stepped out knowing the Lord would provide
Moses left treasures for the King’s reward
David’s heart sang of a merciful Lord
Our Redeemer lives, as even Job knew
The First and the Last and all that is True
Born of a virgin and under the law
Christ vindicates sinners once and for all
By His defense alone we must plead
The Son of God is the promised seed

Beautiful poem, Scotti!
Gosh, it really stood out to me, the scripture in the beginning because of the version, so clear: “For only as a human being could He die…” Blindness is exactly that–blind! Otherwise, how hard should it be to see that as human beings we NEED Christ the Savior?!
Another lovely poem Scotti….
