Lyrics

Verse 1
Blessed Lily of the Valley, oh, how fair is he!
He is mine, I am his;
Sweeter than the angel’s music is his voice to me,
He is mine, I am his.
Where the lilies fair are blooming by the waters calm,
There he leads me, and upholds me by his strong right arm;
All the air is love around me, I can feel no harm,
He is mine, I am his.

Chorus
Lily of the valley,
He is mine!
Lily of the valley,
I am his!
Sweeter than the angel’s music is his voice to me,
He is mine, I am his.

Verse 2
Let me sing of all his mercies, of his kindness true,
Sweeter than the angel’s music is his voice to me,
He is mine, I am his;
Fresh at morn, and in the evening, comes a blessing now,
He is mine, I am his!
With the deep’ning shadows comes a whisper, “safely rest!
Sleep in peace, for I am near thee, naught shall thee molest;
I will linger till the morning, keeper, friend and guest,”
He is mine, I am his.

Verse 3
Tho’ he lead me thro’ the valley of the shade of death,
He is mine, I am his;
Should I fear, when oh, so tenderly he whispereth,
He is mine, I am his!
For the sunshine of his presence doth illume the night,
And he leads me thro’ the valley to the mountain height;
Out of bondage into freedom, into cloudless light,
He is mine, I am his.
