1 On the sweet Eden shore, so peaceful and bright,
The spirits made perfect are dwelling in light;
Their white wings are wafting them gently along,
Through beautiful regions of glory and song.

Refrain:
On the sweet Eden shore, so peaceful and bright;
On the sweet Eden shore, the home of the blest,
With friends gone before we’ll tarry and rest,
Tarry and rest, tarry and rest on the shore.

2 O blessed to rise when life’s pangs are o’er,
To mount up to heaven and dwell evermore,
To never grow weary, and never know care,
In those beautiful regions, so blooming and fair. [Refrain]

3 On the sweet Eden shore, the home of the blest,
With friends gone before soon we’ll tarry and rest;
Content there with Jesus our Saviour to stay,
We’ll delight in the pleasures that never decay. [Refrain]
