Man had no sorrow, knew no shame,
When first he from his Maker came;
Good, wise and happy, all was well;
But Satan tempted, and he fell.
Behold! His Son the Father gave;
The Son descends, and dies to save!
The Spirit next to earth comes down,
The wondrous work of love to crown.
Thus, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Unite to seek and save the lost;
How vast the love of God to man!
How perfect and how wise the plan!
