A song of Adam, Eve and all of humanity

A poem about humanity's collective Fall from a perfect, idyllic world and how we can, nonetheless, seek to regain the innocence and child-like perfection we once had.

1. A song of Adam, Eve and all of humanity

We remember when the world was young,

When all men spoke with common tongue.

But now the Earth has Fallen far,

Its surface marred by strife and war:

Take us back to the Garden

To dwell in the Garden

With Thee.

 

We remember how the golden light

Of daytime altered with the night

To measure the passing of jubilant years.

We remember with fondness the absence of tears.

Take us back to the Garden

To dwell in the Garden

With Thee.

 

We remember the splendour of rivers, of trees,

The myriad fruits, the cool Summer breeze.

We remember a time free from hatred and greed,

When men loved each other in word and in deed.

Take us back to the Garden

To dwell in the Garden

With Thee.

 

Yet perhaps, in good time, we may build, we may grow,

A Garden free from sorrow and woe

Where men dwell once more in peace and in love

And follow the ways of the lamb and the dove.

We will build Thee a Garden

And dwell in the Garden

With Thee.
