Verse 1: As I travel thru life, with its trouble and strife, I’ve a glorious hope to give cheer on the way; Soon my toils will be o’er and I’ll rest on that shore, Where the night has been turned into day.
Verse 2: As I roam the hillside, or I list to the tide, As I pluck the sweet flowers that grow in the dale; A faint picture is there of a land bright and fair, Where perennial flowers ne’er fail.
Verse 3: Tho’ your garden is rare, it is naught to compare With the flowers that bloom in the garden above, In the midst of it grows, Sharon’s perfect sweet Rose; ‘Tis the wonderful Flower we love.
Chorus: Up in paradise valley By the side of the river of life, Up in paradise valley, We’ll be free from all pain and all strife; There we’ll live in the garden, ‘Neath the shade of the evergreen tree, How I long for the paradise valley, Where the beauty of heaven I’ll see.
