Representative Text

1 Valley of Eden, beyond the sea,
Haven of rest, tranquil and blest;
Anchored forever we soon shall be,
Gathered with Jesus to rest;
Songs of the ransomed are floating in air,
Wafted to earth from thy regions so fair;
Angels are tenderly calling us there,
Calling the weary to rest.

Come to this valley of Eden fair,
Weary and sorrow oppressed;
Angels are tenderly calling us there,
Come to this valley of rest.

2 Valley of Eden, the soul’s dear home,
Bright are thy hills, peaceful thy rills;
Happy forever we soon shall roam
Over thy bright blooming hills;
Thine are the beauties that never decay,
Thine is the light of a shadowless day;
Voices of loved ones are calling away,
Home to thy bright blooming hills. [Refrain]

3 Valley of Eden, beyond the sea,
Lovely thy bow’rs, fadeless thy flow’rs;
Valley of Eden, we dream of thee,
Dream of thy beautiful bow’rs.
Friends that were parted with rapture shall meet,
Casting their crowns at Immanuel’s feet;
Still the glad voices of angels repeat,
“Come to the valley of flowers.” [Refrain]
