Blest Be the Second Adam

1 Corinthians 15:49

I look just like my father,

The first rebellious man,

But thanks to grace and mercy

According to His plan,

I shall be like my Savior,

His image bear at last,

When death has worked me over

And this sad world is past.

Or when He comes in glory

In twinkling of an eye,

Made like unto my Savior

No more to sin or die.

When death is dead forever,

and there is no more grave.

Blest be the Second Adam

Who died my soul to save.

And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. 1 Cor. 15:49
