1 All ye people, come down to the judgment begun,
The standard uplifted is shining as the sun;
Who is able to stand, Heaven’s truth to endure?
Pass under the blood and be perfectly pure.
We have come to the deep vale of rest:
All calm and pure, our soul is fully blest.
2 Now the nations are summoned to appear before God,
To gather a remnant made pure in Jesus’ blood;
From the valley of judgment, where all truth is the test,
We enter decision’s sweet valley of rest. [Refrain]
3 Lo, what multitudes enter this sweet valley of choice,
All shouting their triumph with loud exulting voice;
From all sorrow and sighing He hath given release,
Whose coming is near in the valley of peace. [Refrain]
4 All is tranquil and holy in the valley of love,
Its streams are salvation, freely flowing from above;
Every foe is expired, and our weakness made strong,
And th’ vale of decision is vocal with song. [Refrain]
