68
And if that thou dost eat thereof,
Then thou shalt surely die. But Adam he did take no heed
To that same only thing, But did transgress God's holy laws,
And sore was wrapp'd in sin.
Now let good, &c. Now mark the goodness of the Lord,
Which he to mankind bore ; His mercy soon he did extend
Lost man for to restore ; And then, for to redeem our souls
From death, and hell, and thrall, He said his own dear Son should come
The Saviour of us all.
Now let good, &c. Which promise now is brought to pass,
Christians believe it well, And by the coming of God's Son
We are redeem'd from Hell. And if we truly do believe,
And do the thing that's right, Then by his merits we at last
Shall live in Heaven bright.
Now let good, &c. Now, for the benefits that we
Enjoy from Heaven above, Let us renounce all wickedness,
And live in perfect love.
