Title: This Earth was Once a Paradise
Meter: 8 6 8 6 D
Topic: Restoration, Second Coming
This earth was once a paradise,
And it will be once again.
For now, this world must suffice,
Until the morning when,
The Savior comes, again to reign,
The earth will be restored.
The righteous will their rest obtain
And dwell with our dear Lord.
This earth was once as Eden fair,
And it will be once more.
All Israel’s tribes are gathered there
Not scattered as before.
The New Jerusalem will rise
With temples, shining bright.
As Christ descends from clearest skies
To fill the world with light.
The earth is not as Eden yet,
So each must soon prepare,
We must not slumber, nor forget
What we need to live there.
The pure in heart will Zion build,
With all their might and mind,
They must the Holy Spirit wield,
And by him be refined.
