Seed of Woman, Source of Life

Seed of Woman, Source of life

Seed of Woman, source of life,

Fought against the death of man.

Sin, death, hell all caused the strife,

Full salvation was the plan.

“Strike his heel with poisoned fang!

Now he’s gone and in the grave,

Me he will no more harangue

Vain the plan from death to save.”

Myst’ry baffled every one.

Man by Holy Ghost conceived,

God the Father’s only Son

Crushed the snake and wrath relieved.

Bethlehem, the starting place

(Little town of no esteem)

In his body dwelt the race

By his death he would redeem.

Based loosely on Genesis 3:15
