Paradise Regained

God looked out over Creation

He considered all that He made.

Man, He placed in the Garden

Man’s home if he simply obeyed.

******************************************

But the tempter came into the Garden

Witnessing the beauty and peace.

He convinced Eve she was lacking

Knowledge and choice that bring ease.

******************************************

If only she’d eat was his lie

Their eyes would open to see

All that God made was good

But they were not all they could be.

******************************************

They ate of the fruit so forbidden

Knowledge they gained, yes indeed.

They now knew the power of sin

Enslaved by their choice, they were not freed.

******************************************

As I look back to the Garden of Eden

To the choice made by Adam and Eve.

I must admit my own weakness

For my heart too is easily deceived.

******************************************

But thanks be to the Father in Heaven

Who through Christ offers mercy and grace.

I don’t have to serve sin and darkness

I can live before the Creator’s face.

******************************************

By sin a paradise was lost.

By sin my life is stained.

By Christ’s blood the stain is lifted,

In Him Paradise is regained.
