10672. To Adam Thus Jehovah Spake

1 To Adam thus Jehovah spake:
"The ground is cursèd for thy sake;
Thence eat thy bread, and there once more
Become the dust thou wert before."

2 "Serpent," again Jehovah said,
"The woman’s Seed shall bruise thy head,
Yet in the strife thy fury feel,
For thou shalt turn and wound His heel."

3 He comes—we hail His glorious birth,
Who brings the blessing back to earth;
Nor Eden only, but the Tree
Of life and immortality.
