Lyrics

VERSE 1
Somewhere in the wilderness
See Adam walk away
Banished from the One Whose hands
Had made Him from the clay
Looking back to Eden
He saw only what he’d lost
But if he could have looked beyond
He’d have seen a cross

CHORUS
Somewhere east of Eden
There is hope for fallen man
God knew what we needed
When this sinful world began
Jesus went to Calvary
To suffer in our place
Somewhere east of Eden
There is grace

VERSE 2
If you’ve wandered far from God
Down some long, lonely road
He’s waiting now to welcome you
Just turn around and go
Wherever east of Eden is
For folks like you and me
For Adam’s children everywhere
These words will set you free

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
Look to the Lord
When you cannot find your way
There’s forces east of Eden
That will try to make you stay

REPEAT CHORUS

TAG
Jesus went to Calvary
To suffer in our place
Somewhere east of Eden
There is grace
