If I could change the world, I'd begin with that one dark day
when the entire world was led astray....
It starts with a snake with an evil plan
that ends up causing the fall of man.
But first ,in the beginning, allow me to start
with Creation, the every first part.
From the dust of the earth God formed the man
named Adam, who is the one who can
live with the animals and eat from the trees
but he is alone with only the bees.
The woman who the snake is to deceive
wife of Adam, her name is Eve.
God trusts them to live by His law
and to be humble and fair.
He cares for them and they live in peace,
until the snake comes to cease
their perfect paradise
where everything in its nature is very precise.
The snake comes with evil in mind
as he slithers his way up the vine.
He calls to her as one who is nice
but really he comes to entice
the Lord and ruin His perfect paradise.
He asks her, "Did God really say ...?"
and she responds with a 'Nay.'
He tells her to eat of the fruit on the tree
and that she will become like He
who is all-knowing and very good
treats her well, just as He would.
That he really didn't mean it
and that if she bit
nothing bad would happen.
She was convinced, and took a bite
if only she had the sight
to see what would happen when she disobeyed
God's rules for life, but she wasn't afraid.
She convinced the man to do so as well
and told him that he shouldn't tell
but God knew what they had done and was sad
because he knew what the snake had done was very, very bad.
The man's and the woman's eyes were opened
and they began to tend
to their growing shame.
But who was to blame??
They covered themselves and hid from He
who walked in the garden and created the tree.
God called to them and asked where they were
and they replied, 'Well, sir,'
'The woman that you gave me, she is to blame'
said the man, who was full of shame.
'The snake deceived me and I ate'
said the woman, who now was full of hate.
The snake, happy and clever
tried to run and to sever
his bond with the woman, connecting him to the crime
and he the one who should do time.
God knew this, and he cursed the serpent, saying
"And I will put enmity between you and the woman
and between you
off spring and hers.
He will crush your head
and you will strike his heel." (Gen. 3:15)
God won, the snake lost
but at what a cost.
The punishment of the sin
carried on to their kin
and the entire world was to blame
for that simple sin that we all had to claim.
The world is full of hate and of shame
of violence that no one can tame.
The world has its good, but also its bad.
and we all are known to get very, very mad.
God's plan was carried out
so there's no reason to pout.
He gave us a way to come back to Him
and so he, she and them
can all go to heaven.
Jesus saved us through his death on the cross
and now sin is no longer the boss.
We have a choice and we don't have to always do bad
though sometimes we can't help it and are sad.
So, If I could change the world today, I'd make
the entire world better for our sake.
There would be no wars
no anger nor sores
It would be perfect, just as God meant it to be
and then we all would perfectly see
God's way for the world, sinless and pure
without any need of a wonderful cure.
