   Lily of the Valley
   Words: Charles w. Fry
   Tune: William S. Hays

   G                                    C              G
1. I have found a friend in Jesus, He’s everything to  me,
2. He all my grief has taken, and       all my sorrows borne;
3. He will never, never leave me, nor   yet forsake me here,

                                            D     D7
1. He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my   soul;
2. In temptation He’s my strong and mighty  tower;
3. While I live by faith and do His blessèd will;

       G                              C              G
1. The Lily of the Valley, in         Him alone I    see
2. I   have all for Him forsaken, and all my idols   torn
3. A   wall of fire about me, I’ve    nothing now to fear,

                             D        D7         G     G7
1. All I need to cleanse and make me  fully      whole.
2. From my heart and now He  keeps me by His     power.
3. From His manna He my      hungry   soul shall fill.

          C                             G
1. In     sorrow He’s my comfort, in    trouble He’s my stay;
2. Though all the world forsake me, and Satan tempt me sore,
3. Then   sweeping up to glory to       see His blessèd face,

                                          D    D7
1. He tells me every care on Him to       roll.
2. Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal.
3. Where the rivers of delight shall ever roll.


Chorus

         G                       C                  G
He’s the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star,

                        D        D7    G
He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.
