Picture a garden, perfect creation
This is the kingdom plan of the Lord.
Here are God’s children, happy and peaceful
Praising their Father, praising their God.
Soon they had fallen into temptation
Without their God they only do wrong.
God’s love rejected, no more protected
Fearful, unhappy, blinded by sin.
Darkness of judgment, light of salvation
Judging the earth yet still saving some.
Sinners may never enter God’s kingdom
Still we are told salvation will come.
Picture a Saviour, Christ the Redeemer
Paying for sinners with His own blood.
Kingdom established, waiting fulfilment
Soon we will see Him; praise to our God!
