1.  Ever since the Garden
every Eve and Adam,
you and I the fallen
walk the path we've chosen;
and if by choice believe the lie,
then bit by bit we surely die.

2.  Ever since the Garden
every Eve and Adam,
you and I have hidden
in knowledge of our sin;
for what we thought would make us wise
brought shame to our now-opened eyes.

3.  Now let's stop the hiding -
time to start confiding -
else the bitter rancour
of our shame, like cancer
erodes us and we waste away.
Come now - there is another way!

4.  Yes, Jesus is the Way -
the one whose death has paid
the price for every sin,
so we can start again;
and if by choice believe the Truth
then gain a Life we'll never lose!
