CONGRATS to Betsydoglover which is this weeks winner :):)

RIDDLE: Adam, God made out of dust

But thought it best to make me first,

So I was made before man

To answer God's most Holy plan.

A living being I became

And Adam gave to me my name.

I from his presence then withdrew

And more of Adam never knew.

I did my Maker's law obey

Nor ever went from it astray.

Thousands of miles I go in fear

But seldom on earth appear.

For purpose wise God did see,

He put a living soul in me.

A soul from me God did claim

And took from me the soul again.

So when from me the soul had fled

I was the same as when first made.

And without hands, or feet, or soul,

I travel on from pole to pole.

I labor hard by day, by night

To fallen man I give great light.

Thousands of people, young and old

Will by my death great light behold.

No right or wrong can I conceive

The scripture I cannot believe.

Although my name therein is found

They are to me an empty sound.

No feat of death doth trouble me

Real happiness I'll never see.

To Heaven I shall never go

Or to Hell below.

Now when these lines you slowly read,

Go search your Bible with all speed

For that my name is written there

I do honestly to you declare.
