Text Based On Romans Chapter 5 (KJV)
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin;
and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned

DECEIVED BY SUBTLE SNARES OF HELL
Deceived by subtle snares of hell,
Adam, our head, our father, fell;
When Satan, in the serpent hid,
Proposed the fruit that God forbid.
Death was the threatening: death began-
To take possession of the man;
His unborn race received the wound,
And heavy curses smote the ground.
But Satan found a worse reward:
Thus saith the vengeance of the LORD:
“Let everlasting hatred be-
Betwixt the woman’s seed and thee.”
“The woman’s seed shall be my Son;
He shall destroy what thou hast done;
Shall break thy head, and only feel-
Thy malice raging at His heel.”
He spake; and bid four thousand years-
Roll on; at length His Son appears;
Angels with joy descend to earth,
And sing the young Redeemer’s birth.
Lo, by the sons of hell He dies;
But as He hung ’twixt earth and skies,
He gave their prince the fatal blow,
And triumphed o’er the powers below.
A blessèd Seventh Day Sabbath
to all believers.
In the Son’s Name - For the Father’s glory.
