|Text:||The Creation of Adam|
1 In thine own image, Father, God,
That image Christ the Lord display'd;
A present twain— yet future one,
Was Adam, male and female made.
2 Here first the truth divne was shown,
On which is bas'd Salvation's plan:
Flesh of his flesh— and bone of bone,
Man dwells in God— and God in man.
3 O glorious type of heav'nly grace!
Creation's hour proclaims the Son:
For us he left the Father's house:
And in himself, of twain made one.
