The Valley of Blessing

Author: Mrs. Annie Wittenmyer Appears in 98 hymnals First Line: I have entered the valley of blessing so sweet Refrain First Line: O come to this valley of blessing so sweet Lyrics: 1 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,— Oh, believe, and receive, and confess him, That all his salvation may know. 2 There is peace in the valley of blessing so sweet, And plenty the land doth impart; There is rest for the weary-worn traveler's feet, And joy for the sorrowing heart. [Refrain] 3 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] 4 There's a song in the valley of blessing, so sweet That angels would fain join the strain— As, with rapturous praises, we bow at his feet, Crying, "Worthy the Lamb that was slain." [Refrain] Used With Tune: [I have entered the valley of blessing so sweet]
