City of Enoch - Genesis 4:17
A diller a dollar, a 5 o'clock scholar was studying the Word of the Lord,
When all of a sudden he noticed some things that would keep him from ever being bored.
The City of Enoch, he noted, was built by the son of Cain..
How many people were there to help (?), Is something that was never made plain!
A diller a dollar, the 5 o'clock scholar wondered why not give the city a name of its own..?
There were plenty of names that weren't already taken: like Paris, or New York, or Rome.
A name like Enoch would just be confusing, and you'd have to stop and think...
Is it the man or the City of Enoch that's meant? Is this city to Babel a link?
A diller a dollar, the 5 o'clock scholar noticed something else that was strange..
That the Enoch who "walked with God" had copied this very same name!
"Why would he do a thing like that?", he thought, "What was so great about the name Enoch?"
Did using that name help him walk with God? Or was that city especially scenic?
There is a name that's above all others; and the name of David is used for a city..
But many folks don't know the Way; they've lost the directions...more's the pity.
The City of David is the City of Love -- it's the city named Bethlehem..
But the city we're looking for today is called "New Jerusalem"!
A diller a dollar, the 5 o'clock scholar heard the chimes that came from the tower,
He'd been so engrossed in his studies, he hadn't realized it was the eleventh hour.
The way to get to this City, he'd learned, was to start out by walking in love...
and then to begin eating the Living Bread that was sent down from God above.
The story of Enoch as told in Genesis 5:24 leaves us hanging. We wonder: Where did he go? Not until Jude 14 speaks of "Enoch, the 7th from Adam" are we provided a crumb of a clue which brings awareness of the two Enoch's and two Lamech's and the generation count which eventually leads to David #33 and to Jesus #66.
