A Sunday School Lesson
(The Bible in a nutshell for children)
In just six days God did create the heavens and the earth;
Then the man and woman sinned and gave Him a wide berth.
God covered them with hides, then banished them from Eden;
The entrance guarded by a Sword and Cherubim as wardens.
Evil grew and evil spread as mankind served the devil;
Noah built the ark before the waters drowned each rebel.
God sent prophets to His people to tell them to repent;
Kings and priests did not like this and killed those whom God sent.
Then Jesus came and took the blame and died in our stead,
And that is why the devil now our power in Christ dread.
All those who do believe in Christ will never, ever die,
And one day Jesus will return from high up in the sky.
Angels singing, trumpets blowing; Christ will come again,
For He is heaven's darling and the Savior of all men.
