Adam And Eve In The Garden

“Adam And Eve In The Garden” is the first of a three-part song set on man’s start in Genesis. This song celebrates the goodness of God and the beauty of Paradise. The second song, “You’re OUT!”, looks at how man’s fall from Paradise happened. The third song, “The Plan and the Promise”, shows how our loving God will once again set His people in Paradise.

I think a lot of us started reading the Bible in Genesis, where we learn “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” We read about the light and water and earth and plants and animals and fish, and finally, man and women, Adam and Eve. We read about the beautiful garden, and the terrible fall when Adam and Eve ate from the tree God said they must not eat from. We read about Cain, the first son, who became the first murderer. Before long we are reading people became so bad, it says, “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” You remember what happened next, right? Noah, the big boat called the ark, his family and the animals getting on board, the huge flood, the rainbow. Then we read about the Tower of Babel, and languages getting confused. We read so much about the calamity that entered the affairs of men after Adam and Eve sinned.

But for now, let’s pause. Breathe. Turn back. And enjoy lingering a little longer in Adam and Eve’s first paradise home, the Garden of Eden. It was beautiful! No sickness or sorrow, no fear or death, interesting work, abundant food, perfect weather. And best of all, they could walk in the garden and visit with the Lord right there! God’s creation was very good! He liked it, and Adam and Eve certainly had a lot to enjoy, too.

The beginning was magnificent. Did you know the Bible promises things will be magnificent in the end, too? The last book in the Bible, Revelation, teaches God will once again live with His people, and will wipe away all tears from their eyes. There will be no more death, or sorrow, or crying, or pain. In that new, wonderful paradise, there will be no one living in fear or unbelief. No one will tell lies or hurt others. It will be like the place Adam and Eve lived in, only better, because God made a way for His people to live there forever with family and loved ones, enjoying life and health and joy. Even better, we won’t need to worry about destroying THAT paradise by disobeying God, the way Adam and Eve did.

But until that time comes, we can still look back and read about that first paradise, and think how good it was, and how loving God is, Who set up such wonderful life for people. Here is a song about it:


LYRICS: Adam and Eve in the Garden
Song by Dale Reichel

In the beginning God set up a place
For Adam and Eve in the garden
With land and seas and lights up in space
For Adam and Eve in the garden
Lambs and wolves lived together in peace
For Adam and Eve in the garden
No fears, no worries no death no disease
For Adam and Eve in the garden

Bridge
Today we don’t live in that first paradise
Cuz Adam and Eve bought that old serpent’s lies
But we, too, will live in a paradise place
Filled with God’s beauty, His presence, His grace!

We rejoice loving God made it very good
For Adam and Eve in the garden
Everything fit together like God said it should
For Adam and Eve in the garden
Crystal clear water, blue skies up above
For Adam and Eve in the garden
God made good health, fun work and love
For Adam and Eve in the garden
