"If Not For The Apple!"
Judth Johnson Kypta

If it hadn’t for been for the apple
Hanging so prettily on that tree
It would be so very different
For Adam, Eve...You and me

I believe God had a better plan
For His creation, that He made
I imagine it hurt Him badly......
Seeing, well made plans fade

The "Apple" a sign of temptation
To lure, against one’s will
Caused the downfall of creation
And shame, it did instill .....

Imagine, how Eve was tempted
With that apple hanging there
Beckoning to be plucked.......
Emitting it’s fragrance into the air

I can understand Eve’s plight
For the temptation would be great
But she should have called on God
To be strong, but instead ...... She ate

Ate of the apple, forbidden fruit
Listening to lies, Satan....Did tell
How delighted he must have been
Thinking we were doomed, to Hell

He thought had won the war
And had stolen "Man" away
Accomplishing, his wicked plan
Leading God’s own.... Astray

It was such a love, that God had
For all His children, everyone
Not letting Satan, win the battle
He sent a sacrifice... His only Son

Thank God for our Savior Jesus
For he too....Hung upon a tree
Not as an "Apple of Temptation"
But as a ransom.. To set us free

In Him, should not perish, but have everlasting
