1 Beautiful valley of Eden!
Sweet is thy noontide calm;
Over the hearts of the weary,
Breathing thy waves of balm.

Chorus:
Beautiful valley of Eden,
Home of the pure and blest,
How often amid the wild billows
I dream of thy rest, sweet rest!

2 Over the heart of the mourner
Shineth thy golden day,
Wafting the songs of the angels
Down from the far away. [Chorus]

3 There is the home of my Savior;
There, with the blood-washed throng,
Over the highlands of glory
Rolleth the great new song. [Chorus]
