God created a Garden
With such infinite care.
He filled it with lovely trees
And flowers that were rare.
He stood near a lofty giant
And touched its bark with His hands.
He could feel the tree sap flowing
As He gazed toward distant lands.
He carved the earth for a river
That would water the plants that grew
Throughout the Garden of Eden
That He had made brand new.
He was pleased when the river filled
With the rain He caused to fall
Over the grasses and flowers
And where the trees stood tall.
God walked in the cool of the evening
After the sun went down.
He enjoyed the beauty of summer
And sleeping on the ground.
Yet, He found something was missing
That would make it more complete.
So He created the birds to sing
Sweet notes they could repeat.
And the world was far more lovely
When He placed stars in the sky
And a moon to lighten the darkness
As the night drew nigh.
God loved what He had created
And was happy for a while,
But something was still missing.
He longed for another’s smile.
God created human companions
Who could love and converse with Him,
And share in the beautiful music
Of the heavenly seraphim.
