Lord’s Day 38, 2014

I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”


For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.

—1 Corinthians 15:22

The Sin and the Sinbearer
Horatius Bonar (1808–1889)

Humanity hath sinned!
Not Adam, but the race has met its fall;
Life has gone out from earth,
Who shall that life recall?


He only who is man!
Man and yet God, he can undo the fall;
True flesh and blood of earth,
He can that life recall.

Creation has been struck!
Not Eden, but the universal earth;
All things beneath the sun
Are smitten from their birth.

He only loves and saves!
Whose cross hath borne creation’s deadly wrong
Whose blood shall purge away
Creation’s stains ere long.

He, the last Adam, lives!
He died, was buried, and yet liveth still;
Victor o’er hellish hate,
Victor o’er human ill!

His life is life for us!
His joy, his crown, his glory are our own;
For us he fought the fight,
For us he won the throne.

Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope, Second Series (James Nisbet & Co., 1878).

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
