through Adam the curse
(this message is terse)
but you are far worse
than you think you are

though Adam was first
we shared in his thirst
when fully immersed
became heir exemplar

an heir of the curse
(what could be worse)
you cannot reverse
what in Adam you are

yet Jesus embraced
and lifted this race
He offers more grace
than imagined by far

~JD Collier

For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.  (Rom 5:17 NIV)
