1 In the valley of decision,
are you standing there today?
Do the two ways lie before you?
Have you chosen yet your way?
Are you standing still, my brother?
Do you yet defer your choice?
Only listen! from the heavens
comes a loving, pleading voice,
Only listen! from the heavens
comes a loving, pleading voice.

2 Lo, now is the time accepted,
O begin, begin today?
For your Saviour now is waiting,
waiting, why, O why delay?
Your eternal life depends upon
the course you now pursue!
Quickly, quickly, friend, decide it;
what this moment will you do?
Quickly, quickly, friend, decide it;
what this moment will you do?

3 In the valley of decision,
is the struggle great and strong?
Is the conflict fierce and mighty,
'twixt the holy and the wrong?
Call for reinforcement, brother,
there's a heav'nly host near by,
Call for reinforcement, brother,
there's a heav'nly host near by.

4 In the valley of decision,
O decide for God and right;
You are weak, but He is mighty,
and will strengthen you with might;
He will clothe you with His Spirit,
having washed you from your stain:
Call upon Him now, my brother,
none have ever called in vain,
Call upon Him now, my brother,
none have ever called in vain.
