The deadliest virus in history
Was not discovered in a lab,
But long ago in a garden,
As told in the pages of the ancient wisdom.
This virus was never declared a pandemic
By any health organization,
But God declared the virus a spiritual health crisis.
All of us are symptomatic
And we’re all carriers.
This pandemic of sin has raged
Throughout the generations and ages.
Rebellion, hate, greed, murder, and betrayal
Are but a few of the symptoms.
Though God declared sin a pandemic,
He also issued the vaccine:
The sanctifying blood of Jesus Christ.
O precious is the flow which has cured all seeking a cure
And will cure those in the future who will seek relief from the illness.
To receive the vaccine, turn from wickedness,
Repent, and you shall be cleansed of the sin virus.
The deadliest virus in history was eradicated
On a hill called Calvary.
