Here is the single story; it occurred:
Plus time, all was created - not just made;
And, since created (do not be afraid),
Ex nihilo! Creator is our Word.
But - mystery! Some beings, undeterred
By being creatures, sinned: they disobeyed;
Themselves and their Creator they betrayed
(To virtue, reason, love, it was absurd).
Angels were some, hence never could repent;
Their duller, human dupes, with mercy, could -
And, now-the-Judge promised His help to these:
To meet lost, human history, His tent
He pitched within it, taking flesh and blood,
To save all those His love could ever seize.
