Catechism Song #14 – Adam’s Legacy


# Question Answer
34 Did Adam act for himself alone in the covenant of works? No; he represented all his posterity.
35 What effect had the sin of Adam on all mankind? All mankind are born in a state of sin and misery.
36 What is that sinful nature which we inherit from Adam called? Original sin.


Adam in the garden for his posterity
Contracted with His Maker the way we all would be
Wherefore because he stumbled, throughout the world we’re born
With rebel-hearted natures most corrupted and forlorn.
