Dark Earth

Dark earth soon ready
Creating and breathing life
His flowers, plants, tree

Breath allowed him life
She followed, a bone of his
To stand at his side

Loyal 'til the snake
He seemed a likable guy
Doomed them with a bite

Sheen of skin now shamed
Garden exchanged for weeds
A paradise soured

Flaming swords a guard
Thorns and bugs disease and death
Free will to deny

Death covered by dirt
Painful cries for justice heard
A mark a man free

The law carved in stone
Long suffering, He waited
A timeline of man

Big boat of gopher
Ride the waves to sun and land
More thorns they follow

Between came silence
Then He came as was promised
Creator now dirt

On donkey a King
Forgiveness and love He bled
Reaching down to us

A life that gave life
With grimace He wore His crown
Hung from the world's throne

A game prized His clothes
Thunder accepted Him home
His love now complete

Oh stone move aside
Let your God come out of there
Dirt no more, but Rock

To crush the snake's head
Onward soldiers find your King
Leave no dead behind

Tell them of His love
Grab our souls and run to Him
We must not tarry

For justice will reign
The day is now imminent
Search the sky Christian

All will kiss the ground
The crowns we'll throw at His feet
He'll welcome us home

Forever



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
