Product details

The song provides a contemplation of the ideas of forgiveness and restoration, that centres on the symbol of the tree as used in Christian theology.

I gave my Lord an apple,
an apple that I took
from off the tree in Eden's land.

The Lord received my apple
and this he said to me,
'I'll put it back where it belongs, I'll return your apple to the tree'.

And so, each day, more apples, more apples did I find
within each corner of my heart, of ev'ry shape and kind,
and to the Lord I brought them all as I had done before.
'I'll take your apples swift away and to the tree restore.'

One day, as I was walking,
the apple tree I passed
and looking up I found it bare.

I asked my Lord about it:
'Did you not promise me
you'd take my apples swift away and return them all to the tree?'

'As promised, I have done it,' replied to me the Lord.
'I took your apples swift away and to the tree restored.'
And looking t'ward the hilltop, in awe I fin'lly see,
the cross nailed full of apples, apples from me.
