Day 6: Eden

There is no Eden which is above
The Word came down to prepare a place for us
Where we'd meet God in the cool of the day
Walking among the fruit trees

There was no evil, only good
They walked on streets of golden-sunlit dew
They had no sin within or shame without
And no tears to wipe away

There were open gates all around
Out of which would stream all the nations
Multiplying in fruitfulness and peace
Of which there would be no end

But Paradise above is not Eden
The Word has gone to prepare a place for us
Where we will dwell in the house of God
Where there are pleasures forevermore
