EFFECTS OF THE FALL




When Adam sinned, through all his race
The dire contagion spread:
Sickness and death, and deep disgrace
Sprang from our fallen head.


Satan in strong and heavy chains,
Binds the deluded soul;
And every furious passion reigns,
Without the least control.


From God and happiness we fly,
To earth and sense confined;
Lost in a maze of misery,
Yet to our misery blind.


Whene’er the man begins his race,
The criminal appears;
And evil habits keep their pace
With our increasing years.


Corruption flows through all our veins,
Our moral beauty’s gone;
The gold is fled, the dross remains,
Oh, sin, what hast thou done!


Jesus, reveal thy pardoning grace,
And draw our souls to thee;
Thou art the only hiding place,
Where ruined souls can flee.
