Back when the earth was newly made,
And man had just breathed in.
Before the devil told us lies,
Before the start of sin.
God walked with Adam and with Eve,
As sun was sinking low.
Within that time He told them much,
So Him they grew to know.
Although the Bible doesn’t say,
What name they called Him then,
I’m sure He said to call Him Dad,
Each time He spoke with them.
A day had barely passed on by,
When sin walked through the door,
And bonds that had begun to form,
Lay broken on the floor.
For years God tried to call them back,
But few would hear His voice.
If not for one, we’d all be drowned,
Because of our own choice.
He came on down in smoke and flame,
To those from Abraham,
And though He parted seas for them,
They would not take His hand.
As years went by, they preferred rules,
And gods from other lands,
And would not even say His name,
Or try to understand.
Then after kings and lands were gone,
But temple was once more,
He came on down in human form,
To let us know for sure.
“My Father,” Jesus did explain,
“Just wants to love you more,
He wants your heart and mind and soul,
But not your rules and law.”
Too few came forward to learn that God,
Just wants relationship.
He wants a Father / child connect,
Not a dictatorship.
But those who flew religions flag,
Hung Jesus on a cross.
They hoped His tale would die with Him,
When He had breathed His last.
But day three brought a great surprise,
When stone was rolled away,
And Jesus rose, with death now crushed,
To show us all the way.
But now, as time for Christ’s return,
Is nearing day by day,
Too many will not call His name,
And cling to their own way.
Too many seek religion’s rules,
Which make their hearts so sad.
Too few are calling out to Him,
As children to their Dad.
