1 I stood in the valley with Jesus,
In the midst of the suffering throng;
I saw as He healed their diseases,
Turned their sighs into beautiful song.

'Tis so sweet to be with my Savior,
Anywhere, anywhere!
In the heights, or down in the valley,
If He's there, only there.

2 I stood on the mountain with Jesus,
And the kingdom of glory was there;
I saw with an unclouded vision
What some day all the saved ones shall share. [Chorus]

3 I stood at the judgment with Jesus,
At the cross where His life-blood was shed;
I knew there was no condemnation
Waiting me, for He died in my stead. [Chorus]

4 I'll stand with the saints in His presence,
When He comes for His ransomed, His own,
Forgiven and saved, and forever
To sit down with my Lord on His throne. [Chorus]
