A Home in Eden

Adam's Home was a garden not the White House It was constructed as a palace for the first spouse Its builder and draughtsman being God On earth there was none, not even one abroad   The Heavens was Adam's starry roof Changing seasons of God’s unquestionable proof The earth was his humble floor Fitted with a Cedar-Caven door  It was adorned with a glittering golden shade Never was there any home so richly laid The flowers as he trod kissed his feet A garden fragrance that calls for sheet   From it flows a glorious fountain of old It runs into Havilah, where there's gold And the gold of that Land is good A Land that was often misunderstood   Such are the facade of this glorious structure A very elegant piece of iconic architecture A beautiful theme for a poetic pen This was the wisdom of God and not of men   In the midst of the garden is a Tree of Life Adorned with blooms, prepared for His wife A mystery, a pattern of the heavenly glory I can't write more of this detailed love story A delightful and charming scene A beautiful Home you've never seen On earth there was none like theirs Solomon in all his glory still marveled at theirs And when He comes to receive us after our retirement He will reward each one with His furnished apartment A beautiful lodge for the Bride's reception A glory that's beyond earthly description
