LET US RISE FROM THE FALL

LET US RISE FROM THE FALL

In the beginning, on this brand new earth,

Before there was need of a new rebirth,

Adam and Eve in their innocence stood

With power of choice to do what they would.

 

We know of their choice and how they did fall.

We know God loved them and gave them His all.

He sent us His Son from heaven above,

How can we ever repay for such love,

 

We owe our Creator a debt we can't pay.

He is willing to change us in a wonderful way,

To make us like Jesus unselfish and true.

Yet in all this, we make our own choice too.

 

Why do so many choose a world that's lost,

When truly it is nothing but evil and dross?

When the God who redeemed us offers us all,

A glorious future, in spite of our fall.

 

Such love should shame us and restrain us from sin,

And yearn to know Jesus, let Him dwell within.

The life that He promises to one and to all

Should cause us to answer His dear loving call.
