1 Beautiful Eden, refuge of peace,
Home where the songs of the ransomed ne’er cease;
O how my spirit, when saddened by gloom,
Longs to behold thee, thou garden of bloom!

Beautiful Eden, beautiful Eden,
Bright are thy flowers—golden thy fruits;
Pure are thy rivers, thy fountains how free!
Beautiful Eden, my soul longs for thee.

2 Beautiful Eden, sorrow or care
Never can wither thy blossoms so fair;
Sin cannot blight them, and death cannot slay,
Safe in the garden of promise are the. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful Eden, place of delight,
Land of the angels celestial and bright;
Here may the wayfarer stay and take rest,
Here in the heavenly home of the blest. [Refrain]

4 Beautiful Eden, garden of grace,
Where we may gaze on the Saviour’s dear face;
There we shall gather in gladness above,
Roaming the realms of and Eden of love. [Refrain]
