written 9th june 2013

it started at the dawn of creation
to honer, love and protect every nation
it wouldn't take long, for humans to stray
for I'm to believe, it was that very same day
the father of all creation returened to earth
before he would set there punishment, he'd listen to there reason first
for the price of your sin, Spoke with a disheartened breathe 
you and all your decendants, shall be punished by death

sin ravished the land
so the father had to come up with a plan
Noah he told, build an ark for your family and a pair of every creature
with not one question asked, he obayed the word of his teacher
the towns people pointed and laught
nothing would come between Noah and his ark

on completion to his task
all that were called, aboreded the ark
those people that pointed and laught
as the rain flooded the land, they wished back there harsh remarks
when God opened heavens gates, all the world was erased
now he did think, may I have been to harsh
sin washed away leading for a new way, as they off loaded the ark
"humans don't learn so well", God made a snide remark
as God would come to tell
sin again conquered the earth, but he promised no one else would be killed

years past by, God knew the only way to clear Adam n Eve's curse
was to have the curse somehow reversed
so he sent his only son, born to a young virgin to become his mum
this child would have to live life pure and holy, for he was to carry all of mans sin, upon himself
and be lead to a brutal an inhumane death upon that cross
the cross with his pure blood spilled to free and redeem all of man's sin
and blessed us even more, with the holy spirit to dwell within

God knows this was the only way, to return our souls to harmony
he has given the people choice, to live eternally as long as they believe his son died upon that cross
his plan from the start, if it wasn't for that very first sin
how do you think our lives would've really been?
