Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

934. The Valley of Decision

1 There’s a peaceful valley of decision found,
Where unbroken fellowship and love abound;
Softly falls the glory of the evening light,
On its saints arrayed in white.

Refrain:
Oh, how sweet is my rest,
In the vale of the blest;
For the Lord is so near,
And His saints are so dear.

2 In this pure “decision,” all the holy dwell,
All who follow Jesus in His perfect will;
And they only glory in the Crucified,
And in all His truth abide. [Refrain]

3 In this lowly vale is everlasting rest,
For the wholly sanctified in heaven blest;
Oh, what sacred bonds of love and harmony,
In the valley of the free! [Refrain]

4 “Multitudes,” now gather in the vale of love,
And their praises echo on the hills above;
Lo! the Lord is coming, and the day is near;
For the evening sun is clear. [Refrain]
