When Adam and Eve walked with God
life wasn’t good, it was great;
but when they bit the apple
their peace and joy did quickly abate.
The price for those rebellious nibbles
was loads of shame, fear and blame
plus expulsion from God’s earthly garden,
self-absorption and death all they gained.
So it certainly stands to reason
for peace and joy to define our lives,
we must repent and walk with Jesus,
from whom they derive and thrive.
