Before the World or time began, the holy One existed then.
The Father, Son and Spirit three, are but one God eternally.
God ordered time and space to be, in six days made all that we see;
And everything He made was good, all served and loved Him as they should.
God made the angels by His hand, faithful to follow His command,
But choice He gave them to obey, or to rebel and turn away.
The highest angel made his choice, refused to listen to God's voice;
From Heaven's splendour he was cast, in fiery Lake he'll burn at last.
From dust of earth God made a man, though man alone was not God's plan;
From rib of man God made new life, and fashioned her to be man's wife.
And from these two came every race which ever lived upon Earth's face.
In evening cool with them God walked, He fellowshipped and with them talked.
Satan, once highest angel bright, now hating God and all things right,
Deceived the woman, man chose sin, both now would die, death would begin.
And so sin's Curse upon men fell, we're born to sin, then bound for Hell,
But God in Heaven made a way to rescue us from Judgment Day.
The Father freely His Son gave; down Jesus came, was born a child.
He came to die, our souls to save, since we with sin had been defiled.
Upon the cross He bled and died that we might all be justified.
All mankind's sin Christ Jesus bore to free us from Hell's judgement sore.
He lay in death, His body slain, but death could not the victory win;
In three days He arose again, soon Heaven's portal entered in.
O sinners near and far away; repent and trust in Christ today!
Call on the Lord and seek His face, He'll save you by His pow'r and grace.
