What is –  “Paradise” –
Who live there –
Are they “Farmers” –
Do they “hoe” –
Do they know that this is “Amherst” –
And that I –  am coming –  too –
 
Do they wear “new shoes” –  in “Eden” –
Is it always pleasant –  there –
Won't they scold us –  when we're hungry –
Or tell God –  how cross we are –
 
You are sure there's such a person
As “a Father” –  in the sky –
So if I get lost –  there –  ever –
Or do what the Nurse calls "die" –
 
I shan't walk the “Jasper" –  barefoot –
Ransomed folks –  won't laugh at me –
Maybe –  “Eden” a'n't so lonesome
As New England used to be!
