Valley of Eden, beyond the sea,
Haven of rest, tranquil and blest,
Anchored forever we soon shall be,
Gathered with Jesus to rest;
Songs of the ransomed are floating in air,
Wafted to earth from thy region so fair;
Angels are tenderly calling us there,
Calling the weary to rest.

Refrain

Come, come, come, come,
Weary and sorrow oppressed;
Come, come, come, come,
Come to this valley of rest.

Valley of Eden, the soul’s dear home,
Bright are thy hills, peaceful thy rills;
Happy forever we soon shall roam
Over thy bright blooming hills;
Thine are the beauties that never decay,
Thine is a light of a shadowless day;
Voices of loved ones are calling away,
Home to thy bright blooming hills.

Refrain

Valley of Eden, beyond the sea,
Lovely thy bowers, fadeless thy flowers;
Valley of Eden, we dream of thee,
Dream of thy beautiful bowers.
Friends that were parted with rapture shall meet,
Casting their crowns at Immanuel’s feet:
Still the glad voices of angels repeat,
Come to the valley of flowers.

Refrain
