“O Desperate Woman”

“O Desperate Woman”


O Desperate woman to become so wise

            You gave up eternity because of your eyes.

A pleasant sight you thought you had perceived

            But foolish you, how easily deceived.

The serpent came and sold you his plan

            To shame humanity and curse the land

A daily walk with God is what you lost

            Before that bite did you estimate the cost

Your sorrow was multiplied and your husband shall rule

            To work the ground became  his daily duel

But in the midst of your rebellion God put his plan to work

            A Savior set on redemption would be earth’s biggest perk

To save mankind from sin and shame was his lifelong mission

            To educate a chosen people and bring in the addition

Jews and Gentiles all are welcome, God wants us all

            To reap the benefits of redemption after mankind’s fall

Grace and Mercy cover God’s people from head to toe

            Jesus is the only saving Grace and soon all the world will know
