Paradise Valley

Date recorded: October 24, 2014

Words by: Noah White

Music by: Virgil O. Stamps

As I travel through life, with its trouble and strife,
I’ve a glorious hope to give cheer on the way;
Soon my toil will be o’er and I’ll rest on that shore
Where the night has been turned into day.


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.


Though your garden is rare, it is not 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.


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.

Beautiful Star of Bethlehem would be a great addition. Love the site!
