Representative Text

1 There’s a peaceful valley of decision found,
Where unbroken fellowship and love abound;
Softly falls the glory of the evening light,
On its saints arrayed in white.

Oh, how sweet is my rest,
In the vale of the blest;
For the Lord is so near,
And His saints are so dear.

2 In this pure “decision,” all the holy dwell,
All who follow Jesus in His perfect will;
And they only glory in the Crucified,
And in all His truth abide. [Refrain]

3 In this lowly vale is everlasting rest,
For the wholly sanctified in heaven blest;
Oh, what sacred bonds of love and harmony,
In the valley of the free! [Refrain]

4 “Multitudes,” now gather in the vale of love,
And their praises echo on the hills above;
Lo! the Lord is coming, and the day is near;
For the evening sun is clear. [Refrain]
