"In The Beginning"
(Dorcas Cochran / Kay Twomey / Ben Weisman / Fred Wise)

In the beginning the Lord made the earth
The Heavens, the hills and the seas
Then He created the sun and the stars
The land, the fruit, the trees

He made all creatures that lived in the earth
And taught them to live by His plan
Then as He rested the Lord sanctified
The seventh day for man

Molded in the image of His maker
Man shall have dominion over all
But because we're nothing more than human
Sometimes we stumble, sometimes we fall

In the beginning the world was so right
Perfection was there for all men
So pray and believe Him, the Lord's holy life
And we'll have perfection again
