"Eden" as written by and Philip David Wickham....
When the first light brightened the dark
Before the breaking of the human heart
There was You and there was me
Innocence was all I knew
'Cause I had to know was You
We were running underneath the trees

I want to see You face to face
Where being in Your arms is the permanent state
I want it like it was back then
I want to be in Eden

I still remember how You'd call my name
And I would meet You at the garden gate
How the glory of Your love would shine
And I remember when the stars were young
You breathed life into my lungs
Oh, I never felt so alive

I want to see You face to face
Where being in Your arms is the permanent state
I want it like it was back then
I want to be in Eden
To be naked and unashamed
In a sweet downpour of innocent rain
I want it like it was back then
I want to be in Eden

Where my eyes can see the colors of glory
My hands can reach the heaven before me
Oh my God, I want to be there with You
Where our hearts will beat with joy together
And love will reign forever and ever
Oh my God, I want to be there with You

I want to see You face to face
Where being in Your arms is the permanent state
I want it like it was back then
I want to be in Eden
To be naked and unashamed
In a sweet downpour of innocent rain
I want it like it was back then
I want to be in Eden
