And the man said,The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And the L God said unto the woman,What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said,The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
The dayThou gavest, Lord, is ended, The darkness falls at Thy behest.John Ellerton
Earth, thou grain of sand on the shore of the Universe of God; thou Bethlehem, amongst the princely cities of the heavens; thou art, and remainest, the Loved One amongst ten thousand suns and worlds, the Chosen of God! Thee will He again visit, and then thou wilt prepare a throne for Him, as thou gavest Him a manger cradle; in His radiant glory wilt thou rejoice, as thou didst once drink His blood and tears, and mourn His death! On thee has the Lord a great work to complete.
