1 Down in the valley among the sweet lilies,
Walks my Beloved, his footprints I see;
Haste I to follow thee, Savior and Lover,
How the winds whisper thy dear name to me!

Oh, my beloved Lord!
For me thy lifeblood pour’d,
Thou blessed Son of God,
Jesus my Lord.

2 Know’st thou I seek thee? oh, haste to discover
Where is the place of thy fragrant retreat—
Where thou dost rest with thy flocks at the noontide,
Shelter’d near fountains unsearch’d by the heat. [Refrain]

3 Now I approach thee, oh, fairest Redeemer,
Lured by thy beauty to dwell in thy love;
Hide not thy face from the heart that adores thee;
Hast thou not sought me and called me thy Dove? [Refrain]

4 Gentler thy voice than the whisper of angels,
Brighter thy smile than the sun in the sky;
Gather me tenderly, close to thy bosom,
Faint with thy loveliness thus let me die. [Refrain]
