Representative Text

1 As I travel thru life, with its trouble and strife,
I've a glorious hope to give cheer on the way;
Soon my toil will be o'er and I'll rest on that shore
Where the night has been turned into day.

Up in the beautiful paradise valley,
By the side of the river of life,
Up in the valley, the wonderful valley,
We'll be free from all pain and all strife;
There we shall live in the rose-tinted garden
'Neath the shade of the evergreen tree,
How I long for the paradise valley,
Where the beauty of heaven I'll see.

2 As I roam the hillside, or I list to the tide,
As I pluck the sweet flowers that grow in the dale;
A fair picture is there of a land bright and fair
Where perennial flowers ne'er fail. [Refrain]

3 Tho your garden is rare, it is naught to compare
With the flowers that bloom in the garden above,
In the midst of it grows Sharon's perfect sweet Rose,
'Tis the wonderful Flower we love. [Refrain]
