1 I must walk thro’ the valley and the shadow,
But I’ll journey in a loving Saviour’s care;
He hath said He will never, never leave me,
With His staff He will comfort me there.

Thro’ the valley, thro’ the valley,
Thro’ the valley and the shadow I must go;
But the dark waves of Jordan will not harm me,
There is peace in the valley, I know.

2 Tho’ I walk thro’ the valley and the shadow,
Yet the glory of the dawning I shall see;
I shall join in the anthems over Jordan,
Where the loved ones are waiting for me. [Refrain]

3 I shall walk thro’ the valley and the shadow,
I shall follow where my Lord has gone before;
Thro’ the mists of the valley He will lead me,
Till I rest on the Evergreen Shore.
