1. On let us go where the valley of Eden fair
Blooms on the bank of the river;
On where the fields, in the beautiful robe they wear,
Wave in the sunlight forever.

On let us go, on let us go, on let us go,
On where the happy ones are calling.

2. On let us go where the beautiful realms above
Ring with the time honored story;
Saved through the might of a blessèd Redeemer’s love,
His be the praise and the glory. [Refrain]

3. On let us go where the weary and toil oppressed
Soon shall forget every sorrow;
On where the soul to a happy and golden rest
Wakes in eternity’s morrow. [Refrain]

4. On let us go where the loving and loved shall meet,
Meet on the bank of the river;
There shall they sing at the blessèd Redeemer’s feet
Songs that shall echo forever. [Refrain]
