1. We're bound for the land of the pure and the holy,
The home of the happy, the kingdom of love;
Ye wand'rers from God, in the broad road of folly,
Oh, say, will you go to the Eden above?
Will you go, will you go,
Will you go to the Eden above,
Will you go, will you go,
Oh, say will you go to the Eden above?

2. March on, happy pilgrims, that land is before you,
And soon its ten thousand delights we will prove;
Yes, soon we shall walk o'er the hills of bright glory,
And drink the pure joys of the Eden above.
Will you go, will you go,
Will you go to the Eden above,
Will you go, will you go,
Oh, say will you go to the Eden above?

3. And yet, guilty sinner, we would not forsake thee;
We halt yet a moment as onward we move;
Oh, come to the Lord; in his arms he will take thee,
And bear thee along to the Eden above.
Will you go, will you go,
Will you go to the Eden above,
Will you go, will you go,
Oh, say will you go to the Eden above?

4. Methinks thou art now in thy wretchedness saying,
Oh, who can this guilt from my conscience remove?
No other but Jesus; then come to him praying,
Prepare me, O Lord, for the Eden above.
Will you go, will you go,
Will you go to the Eden above,
Will you go, will you go,
Oh, say will you go to the Eden above?
