We can make it happen
Thatís what the people claim.
But for all of their attempts
Things are still the same.

You try the new and different
Trying out each dream.
But you are disappointed
Nothing saying what it means.

I traveled all around the world
Thereís one thing that I know.
If you do not mix it right
It doesnít make it so.

God is our Creator
Formed us out of sand.
Made us in his image
Calling us a man. 1.

He gave us freewill
Like Him we were pure.
We could do what He had planed
Fellowship for sure.

He gave us everything
Except one little tree.
Lucifer was so jealous
He could not let it be.

In a form of a serpent
He came to tempt man.
Filling his head with lies
Deceiving him when he can.

After the deed was over
There was laughter in the trees.
With a little apple
He brought man to his knees. 2.

God does not give up
Stirring the mix about.
Tried to make it one more time
Knowing how it will turn out.


I think He lets this happen
Just to see us humans grow.
Using the gifts He gave to us
A time so long ago.

His experiment is succeeding
Itís growing leaps and bounds.
It will soon be ready
When Jesus comes around.

Jesus is the gardener
He plants us in the spring.
He will reap the harvest
The best that He could bring.

We stand before the alter
Jesus made us pure.
If you decide to be with us
Thereís a knocking at your door. 3.

Paraphrased NIV

1. Genesis 2:7
2. Genesis 3:1-6
3. Revelations 3:20

This is quite lovely and touched my heart. I think you had a tiny typo planed instead of planned. The rhythm and rhymes were nice.
