Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Afar from the turmoil of life’s busy sway,
Midst splendors of Heaven’s bright glorious day;
The valleys of Eden, with riches untold,
Are waiting our coming, their joys to unfold.

O Eden, blest Eden, with valleys so fair,
O Eden, blest Eden, we long to be there,
Midst flow’rs that are blooming, where God is the light;
Eternal Thy morning, obscuring the night.

2 The lull of a stream, from a clear crystal fount;
The perfume of rose, from an evergreen mount;
The Saviour’s sweet presence the angels anear,
Fill Eden with rapture of praises and cheer. [Refrain]

3 In Eden, the garden; sweet home of the soul,
Beyond earthly tempests and billows dark roll;
The saints, in the glory of Jesus their King,
Their voices in praises so cheerfully ring. [Refrain]

4 O home of our longing, O Saviour divine,
Thine ear to our praying, O ever incline;
Send some of the blessings which Eden can give,
To children of earth, while they faithfully live. [Refrain]
