Eden Revisited

In search of Acceptance…

O Desperate Woman, Inspired by: Genesis 3:6-7 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.

“O Desperate Woman”

O
Desperate woman to become so wise

You
gave up eternity because of your eyes

A pleasant sight you thought you perceived

But
foolish you how easily deceived

The
serpent came and sold you his plan

To
shame humanity and curse the land

A
close walk with God is what you lost

Before
that bite did you estimate the cost

Your
sorrow was multiplied and your husband shall rule

To work the ground and tend to it became his daily duel

But
in the midst of your rebellion God put His plan to work

A
Savior set on redemption would be earth’s biggest perk.

To
save mankind from sin and shame was His mission

To
educate a chosen people and bring in the addition

Jews
and Gentiles all are welcome, God wants us all

To
reap the benefits of redemption after mankind’s fall

Grace
and Mercy cover God’s people from head to toe

Jesus
is the only Saving Grace and soon all the world will know.
