First and Last

What a fleeting moment is

The spirit of our breath;

The length of days for every man

Brings with it certain death.

For, from the moment we are born

We then begin to die,

And all because of Eve

Who believed the Serpent's lie.

For when Adam tasted of the fruit

That the Lord our God forbid

Death's sentence passed upon all man

Sin's nakedness was not hid.

Now, in the Adam that was first

Creation groans in sin;

But in the Adam who is last

Eternal life we win !

Each Adam is a corporate man;

The first from earth is death

But the last Adam, from heaven came

To impart the Spirit's breath.

Romans 5:1-15
