Adam and Eve saw red in the Garden of Eden that day,
When tempted by forbidden fruit, they chose to go astray.
Willing to give his only son, Abraham saw red,
But before the knife touched Isaac, God provided a ram instead.
Spies in Jericho escaped, with the help of Rahab the harlot.
Israel spared those within her house when they saw the cord of scarlet.
King Solomon saw red in the temple walls’ adornment,
A symbol of the sacrifice God would make for sin’s atonement.
Roman soldiers mocked Him when they saw a robe of red,
And placed a crown of thorns upon the precious Savior’s head.
The demons of Hell saw red, and gnashed their teeth and wailed,
When Jesus rose the third day, and against Hell’s gates prevailed.
Our Father, God in Heaven, sees red whene’er He sees us,
For when He looks upon our sin, He sees the blood of Jesus.
And though our sins be scarlet, there’s one thing that we can know,
By the red blood of Christ Jesus, we’ll be washed white as the snow.
