Out of the Garden by Raymond A. Foss

Not growing smarter
gaining an insight
becoming adults
on a par with God

Expelled, out of the garden
the bliss of walking with God
forever breaking the covenant
the command of God

The fall of man
dying to the creator
cast out of the garden
to toil in the land

Naked, animals,
exposed before the Lord
banished to work, to sweat
away from God

Not mere insight
sin, from that fateful day
all of man corrupted
by the stain of that choice

Never able, on our own
to seal this mighty breach
needing the coming of the Lord
our savior down to earth

Only by his grace,
not righteousness under the law
only the love of God
to bring us back to him
