SCENIC SUNDAYS: Lily of the Valley







The Lily of the Valley
English Melody


I have found a friend in Jesus, 
He's everything to me,
He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul; 
The Lily of the Valley,
In Him alone I see all I need to cleanse and make me fully whole.
In sorrow He's my comfort, 
In trouble He's my stay,
He tells me every care on him to roll:  
He's the Lily of the Valley,
The Bright and Morning Star, 
He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.


He all my griefs has taken, 
and all my sorrows borne, 
In temptation He's a strong and might tower;
I have all for Him forsaken, and all my idols torn
From my heart and how He keeps me by His power.
Though all the world forsake me, and Satan tempt me sore,
Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal:  
He's the Lily of the Valley,
The Bright and Morning Star, 
He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.


He will never, never leave me, 
nor yet forsake me here, 
While I live by faith and do His blessed will, 
I have all for Him forsaken,
I've nothing now to fear, 
With His manna He my hungry soul shall fill.
Then sweeping up to glory to see his blessed face, 
Where rivers of delight shall ever roll:

He's the Lily of the Valley,
The Bright and Morning Star, 
He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.





Have a beautiful SON-day!
