A Foretaste Of The Life To Come

In a garden of flowers he did repose
A place of solace where he often meditate
His glorious presence he often did dedicate

He sank to his knees in worship and adoration
He lays there, lost in His Awesomely Inspiring Presence
As spiritual songs marched up the throne of the Omnipresence 

He stood in awe, as he watched cautiously
A green serpent gazed at him with its eyes
Slowly creeping on the branches, not far-off it spies

He was scared! This is strange! What a shock!
While his lip sings, the serpent appears
As soon as he ceases, unto the trees the creature disappears

Oftentimes it’ll draw close and stare at him
He thought of striking the creature to death	
And a voice said, “Catch your breath”

This creature that wears a green dress
Being subject to decay and pain
Also looks forward with hope to reign

It is obvious and abundantly clear
Not only this creature, but the whole of creation
For creation groans being subjected to corruption

And fear, enslavement and physical frailty
Will be redeemed at the consummation of our glory
The Holy Spirit is granted as a foretaste of that eternal story

For the earnest expectation of the creation waiteth for the revealing of the sons of God.  For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. [Romans 8:19,22]
