"Eternity" as written by Adam R. Young and Paul Van Dyk....
All that is behind me, this mess of life
Where out of nothing came a beautiful design
Know that I've had but a taste of a deathless wine
So I give up the flame to the hands beside
And I'll be waiting

Where the desert is covered in roses
Where I can outshine the stars in a single day
The face of God isn't hidden
When I wake into eternity

Where the shadows are never discovered
Tears are nothing more than a memory
Death isn't alive any longer
When I wake into eternity

Now I know I see it in your eyes
You knew at some point that we'd have to say goodbye
I looked for this moment for all my life
To be caught away in the arms of God
And I'll be waiting

When I awake I'll see Your face
When I awake I'll see Your face [Revelation 22:4]

    Song MeaningKevin said this about this song

    "Several years ago I wrote a song called “Things Left Unsaid.” It was a song about my experience with my grandfather’s unexpected death. The song tells the story of my sadness and regret for not saying the things I should have said to him while he was alive. The song “Eternity” is written as if I had the chance to have that final conversation with my grandfather, and what he would have said back to me. I believe the lyrics of this song are the words that he would have spoken to me." - Kevin Young (Disciple)
