The Fall Of Man In Eden's Garden! - Poem by Clarence Prince

This happened unto a couple many years ago
When Eve should’ve refused but didn’t say no
Instead she yielded to Satan’s sinful device
Next they both defied God’s Holy advice
And allowed Satan to lead them into trouble
Then despite it had been extremely long ago
Yet God has a plan which shall come to pass

After they allowed themselves to be enticed
Before long they knew that they were defiled
For they noticed that they were both naked
Being disobedient they fell into Satan’s trap
Then despite it had been awfully long ago
Earlier God made a decree to redeem man
And the Lord’s promise shall come to pass

Later that evening the Lord came from above
As usual He has endless compassion and love
He looked for the couple but they were hiding
He called for Adam who shouldn’t be in hiding
Satan beguiled Eve but Adam was in authority…
And so despite it had been exceedingly long ago
Yet God has a plan which shall truly come to pass

God called for Adam, he answered we are naked
How could you know now that you are naked
Have you eaten of the fruit of the forbidden tree
Thus cometh My presence you are trying to hide
We have been beguiled and so we are hiding
Then despite it had been truthfully long ago
God has a plan which yet shall come to pass

I gave you a command which you should’ve kept
You have disobeyed so for bread you must sweat
As for your clothes leaves won’t properly twist
Just the furs from animals’ skin will fix betwixt
As God saw their shame He made them clothes
Then despite it had been exceedingly long ago
Yet God has a plan which shall surely come to pass

There cometh a day of salvation in the distant future
Said God, at that time I ‘God’ will send man a Saviour
He shall be known as the restorer of this very breach
His name is Jesus and by Him all evil will be crushed
Besides He will teach every man what’s right to preach
Then despite God’s promise was extremely long ago
Jesus indeed appeared and He repaired the breach.

Here, perhaps it’s fair just to say Amen!

    The Fall of Man
    Clarence Prince,
    It is wonderful to come across a writer giving words of true life. All humanity still reels under sin's thumbprint. God Allmighty in His wisdom and love allows this world to suffer for their own evil but has provided a way out. When I look at the awfullness of evil I know that the opposite beauteous life characteristics of nature, charity, and nature are the other side of the shadow. These are our clues to find of who God is. Your poem was so well written in detail. It did me so much good to be reminded of what I possess in Jesus; for He is Lord! Blessings this CHRIST- MAS season! sincerely Kathy

    all evil will be crushed ...............again you leave me wondering. if the evil was to be crushed, WHY WASN'T IT? there sure seems to be plenty of evil existing in the world many, exceedingly many, truthfully many, awfully many, AND extremely many years after God's promise. hmmmm?

    a good write by you. thanks. bri :)

    p.s. i don't recall the bible saying God made clothes for the couple. nice Guy!
