Lord, Thou art the Seed of woman

Lord, Thou art the “Seed of woman,”
  Born to bruise the enemy;
Thou didst take the human nature,
  Die to win the victory.
As the very God incarnate,
  Flesh and blood Thou didst partake;
Thou thru death hast crushed the devil
  And his pow’r of death didst break.
“Seed of Abraham,” Thou art, Lord,
  By God’s promise Thou hast come,
That the blessing He hath promised
  On all people thus might come.
Abraham Thou hast preceded,
  For Thou art the great “I AM,”
Yet Thou cam’st to be his offspring
  And become God’s promised “Lamb.”
Lord, Thou art the “Seed of David,”
  For the kingdom Thou wast raised;
For God’s glory and His building
  On the throne Thou hast been placed.
Truly Thou art “David’s offspring,”
  Yet “my Lord” he calleth Thee,
For Thou art his “root” and fountain,
  “Lord of all” eternally.
Though “a child” born with our nature,
  Thou the “Mighty God” art called;
Thou, “a son” to us art given,
  “Everlasting Father” called.
All the blessings God hath promised,
  With our faith on Thee depend;
Thou art “Yea” and “Amen” for them,
  All the content and the end!

Lord, You are the Seed of the woman, born with divinity to enter into humanity and put on human nature. You died to win the victory and bruised the head of the enemy! Hallelujah!

Hallelujah! This Seed is all inclusive and life giving! As the seed of woman he crushed Satan's head! As the seed of Abraham He is a priest! As the seed of David He is a King! He is everything we need!

Lord, You ARE the great "I AM".

The promises given by God concerning Christ as our Redeemer and Savior are all regarding a seed: the seed of the woman, the seed of Abraham, and the seed of David. This is expressed in Hymns, #191, where the first three stanzas portray Christ as the seed of the woman, the seed of Abraham, and the seed of David. These three seeds are promised in the Old Testament; but in the New Testament, Christ as the fulfillment of these seeds has come. Matthew 1:1 says, "The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham." Both David and Abraham are mentioned at the beginning of Christ's genealogy, and Mary is mentioned at the end (v. 16). Many names are mentioned in this genealogy, but Jesus is called only the seed of the woman (Mary), the seed of David, and the seed of Abraham.
