Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 There’s a beautiful valley of peace,
Where the heart of the weary may rest;
Where tumult of trials may cease,
And those who are burdened be blest.

In the valley of peace, the valley of peace,
In the beautiful valley of peace,
My Saviour is there ev’ry burden to bear,
In the beautiful valley of peace.

2 In that beautiful valley I know
Wild clamor is hushed into calm;
And, walking where still waters flow,
The sorrowing soul findeth balm. [Refrain]

3 In the valley of peace I may hide,
Where strifes of the world cannot mar,
And there I will follow my Guide,
My Hope and my glorious Star; [Refrain]

4 In the valley of peace let me roam
With Jesus, my “Staff” and my “Rod,”
Till I come to my heavenly home,
Whose builder and maker is God. [Refrain]
