Saw the title and immediately Ein Feste Berg started playing in my head. :)

And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us
We shall not fear, for God hath willed his truth to triumph through us.

Aye, and then as I read on it felt as though I were reading +Irenaeus and this hymn came to mind:

Two Adams walked upon the earth:
For woe, for woe; for joy, for joy;
Two Eves came to fill a dearth:
For woe, for woe; for joy, for joy,for joy!

Two Adams bridging man and God:
For woe, for woe; for joy, for joy;
Two Eves brought to man a rod:
For woe, for woe; for joy,for joy, for joy!

Two Adams plundged in death’s dark sea:
For woe, for woe; for joy, for joy;
Two Eves wept beside the tree:
For woe, for woe; for joy, for joy,for joy!

Two Adams weighed in Father’s scale:
For woe, for woe; for joy, for joy;
To Eve, farewell! To Mary, hail!
Go woe, go woe; come joy, come joy, come joy!

Adapted from St. Irenaeus of Lyons, 3rd C
F. L. Battles, 1969
