When Adam was created,
He dwelt in Edenís shade,
As Moses has related,
Before a bride was made.
Ten thousand times ten thousand
Of creatures swarmed around,
Before a bride was formed,
Or any mate was found.

This woman, she was taken
From near to Adamís heart,
By which we are directed
That they should never part.
The book thatís called the Bible,
Be sure you donít neglect;
For in every sense of duty,
It will you both direct.
This song was composed in honor of Troup Edmonds.
