Peace in the Valley Lyrics

I have entered the valley of blessing so sweet,
And Jesus abides with me there;
And His Spirit and blood make my cleansing complete,
And His perfect love casteth out fear.

Refrain

Oh, come to this valley of blessing so sweet,
Where Jesus will fullness bestow;
And believe, and receive, and confess Him,
That all His salvation may know.

There is peace in the valley of blessing so sweet,
And plenty the land doth impart;
And there's rest for the weary, worn traveler's feet,
And joy for the sorrowing heart.

Refrain

There is love in the valley of blessing so sweet,
Such as none but the blood-washed may feel,
When Heaven comes down redeemed spirits to greet,
And Christ sets His covenant seal.

Refrain

There's a song in the valley of blessing so sweet,
And angels would fain join the strain,
As with rapturous praises we bow at His feet,
Crying, "Worthy the Lamb that was slain!"

Refrain
