There in the tree.
Treetop fruit forbidden
Forbidden for you and me.
Yet the serpent deceived me, and so I ate
Ate of its wondrous flesh.
Flesh of ripe red and green.
Green like the leaves.
Leaves…leaving, now we must go.
Go far away.
Away to another land because of what I have done.
Done it is, and I this I regret.
My regret for eating the fruit is very deep,
Deeper than the oceans blue.
Blue, yes. For I disappointed my Lord God
The God who has cared for us well.
Well, I shouldn’t have eaten it.
It was wrong, forgive me God
God help us on our journey.
As we journey outside of the garden we loved.
Loved by God were we,
But we blew it.
It was paradise.
Paradise pristine…The best fruit we have ever seen.
We have seen that we are still loved by God
God is our father.
And we’re the apple of his eye.
His eyes are always on us, praise Him!
