Lyrics

VERSE 1
He hears a rustle in the breeze
His Maker walking in the trees
The face he once had loved to see
Adam sees
His breath still bears forbidden fruit
The curse of evil takes its root
Excuses are no substitute
Adam sees

VERSE 2
For centuries, he bears the blame
Long centuries of death and shame
Each widow’s face, each orphan’s name
Adam sees
He sees his children join the slain
He fights the thorns, but fights in vain
He longs for death to end the pain
That Adam sees

VERSE 3
He hears a thunder at the door
He sees a face he’s seen before
His Friend, his Son, is now his Lord
Adam sees
With joy he joins the ransomed dead
For Christ the Victor in his stead
Has finally crushed the serpent’s head
Adam sees

TAG
Adam…
…joins the ransomed dead
The second Adam, in his stead,
Has finally crushed the serpent’s head
Adam sees

Scripture References

Genesis 1-4 | Perhaps nothing is as painful for a parent as watching a son or daughter in pain, with nothing they can do about it. Now imagine yourself in the shoes of Adam as an old man, as he watches his children suffer and die—knowing his sin had brought this upon them.
