‘Has God really said’—
Planted doubts in her head,
Death-filled doubts bearing fruit today;
‘You’ll not surely die’
Makes God’s Word a lie,
But lying’s the ‘liars’ forte.

Paradise is lost
Testifies the cost
Agreement with devils dictates;
Effects of the ‘fall’
We cannot forestall
In a world where death permeates.

But our gracious Lord
Who is true in Word
Gave promise at Eden’s demise,
There would come her Seed
Who would intercede
With infinite purchasing price.

Though His heel was bruised
When as One accused
He gave His life upon the cross
Crushed the serpent’s head
By His lifeblood shed
And paid redemption’s price for us.

Sentence now repealed
By agreement sealed
Through faith in Jesus’ blood professed;
Through the promised Seed
God had guaranteed
That all nations would be blessed.

Wondrous mystery
Man’s iniquity
Should be atoned for by God’s Son!!
Let no words of doubt
Crowd believing out—
It’s God’s agreement; It is done!

Nice job!

There were a couple of lines that, for me, didn't fit rhythmically as well as most of the other lines. However, I'm not the best with poetry in general.

I love how you hit on the major points of the gospel so succinctly!
