There were two versions of this song. I have tried to place each line side by side with blanks in the version that had less lines.
One time I dreamed of a valley One time I dreamed of a valley
Where shadows quickly fall Where shadows quickly fall.
Where there is no light or beauty, There is no light or beauty.
Dark clouds hanging over all. Dark clouds hanging over all.
  With no water in this valley,
All is seared and growing dry All is seared and growing dry.
'Tis a valley full of evil This valley is full of evil
Where the souls of men quickly die

Where souls of men will soon die.

Then I dreamed of a greener valley Then I dreamed of another valley
Where clear sparkling waters flow. Where clear sparkling waters flow.
'Tis a place of my dearest longings,A place of my fondest fancies,
A place where I long to go. A place where I long to go.
There I'll drink the purest of water; There I'll drink of the purest waters,
Bathe my aching head and my feet; Bathe my aching head and feet.
Dwell there till time is ended. Dwell there 'till all time is ended
Then my valley is made complete.

In a valley that is made complete.

Here's a valley that I long for Here's a valley that I long for
Where I shall never grow old. Where I never shall grow old.
To live in heavenly sunlight And live in His heavenly sunlight
Where it never grows dark or cold. Where it never grows dark or cold.
There I'll meet and know my Master. There I'll meet and know my Master.
There I'll receive my robe and my crown. There receive my robe and crown.
Each day it will grow more lovely.Its beauty will always go with me
Each day I will walk it round.

Each day as I walk it round.

I long for that beautiful valley I long for that beautiful valley
That is clothed by a sun-kissed veil That is clothed by a sun-kissed veil.
While flowers forever are blooming, The flowers forever are blooming,
And the sunlight never will fail. And the sunlight never will fail
When I see that beautiful valley, When I come to that beautiful valley,
Prepared with my own Savior's love Prepared with my Savior's love.
I know I shall live there forever I know I shall live there forever
With God in the heavens above

With God in the heavens above.

Then I dream of another valley Then, I dream of a greener valley
Where I shall never grow old. Where I never shall grow old.
Life-giving waters flow freely Life-giving waters flow freely
For the lambs that are in the fold For lambs that are in the fold.
I shall view its matchless splendor I shall view its matchless splendor.
Through it I shall ever more roam Through it I shall ever more roam.
Walking hand and hand with Jesus Walking hand in hand with Jesus
In the valley I now call my home.

In a valley that I now call my home.
