1 As we journey from earth to the kingdom above,
In the path where the millions have trod,
There a beautiful valley we meet on the way,
And its light is the sunshine of God.
How we turn to its shelter our travel-worn feet,
From our burdens to find a release;
And our souls are refreshed by the Shepherd divine,
In the beautiful valley of peace.
O the beautiful valley of peace,
Beautiful valley of peace;
No tempests arise to darken the skies,
Beautiful valley of peace.
2 Oh, that beautiful valley of holy delight
Is secluded from earth and its woes;
There the wiles of the tempter can never assail,
And the weary awhile may repose.
How we fly to its shelter from billow and storm,
For we know their commotion will cease
When we hear the sweet voice of the shepherd divine,
In the beautiful valley of peace. [Refrain]
3 Oh, that beautiful valley of holy delight
Is a foretaste of glory untold,
That will burst on our eyes when we enter the gates
To the city of jasper and gold.
When at home with the blest in the mansions of rest,
Where forever all sorrow shall cease,
We will praise the dear name of our Shepherd divine
For the beautiful valley of peace. [Refrain]
