THE LORD AT FIRST HAD ADAM MADE The Lord at first had Adam made Out of the dust and clay, And in his nostrils breathed life, Eíen as the Scriptures say. And then in Edenís Paradise He placed him to dwell, That he within it should remain, To dress and keep it well. Chorus Now let good Christians all begin An holy life to live, And to rejoice and merry be, For this is Christmas Eve. And thus within the garden he Commanded was to stay; And unto him in commandment These words the Lord did say: The fruit that in the garden grows To thee shall be for meat, Except the tree in the midst thereof Of which thou shall not eat. Chorus For in the day thou dost it touch Or dost it then come nigh, 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 Godís holy laws, And sore was wrapp't in sin. Chorus 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. Chorus Which promise now is brought to pass: Christians believe it well: And by the coming of Godís Son, We are redeem'd from Hell. So if we truly do believe, And do the thing thatís right, Then by His merits we at least Shall live in Heaven bright. Chorus Now, for the benefits that we Enjoy from Heaven above, Let us renounce all wickedness, And life in perfect love. Then shall we do Christ's own command, Even his written word, And when we die, in Heaven we shall Enjoy our living Lord. Chorus And now the tide is nigh at hand, In which our Saviour came; Let us rejoice and merry be In keeping of the same; Letís feed the poor and hungry sort, And such as do it crave; And when we die, in Heaven be sure Our reward we shall have. Chorus (Contributed by Frank DiSalle - December 2003)
