Representative Text

1 They tell me that there is a shaded vale
Thro’ which I must surely go,
But passing that way it could not be dark,
My Lord would be there I know.

Refrain:
My Lord will be there I know,
My Lord will be there I know,
The shadows cannot harm me,
My Lord will be there I know.

2 It may be that some day my path may lead
There death casts its gloomy shade;
Since death by His dying has lost it pow’r,
Will shadows make me afraid. [Refrain]

3 Since Jesus my Saviour endured the cross,
I need not fear anything,
For He tasted death, and He gives me life,
Oh death, where is now thy sting. [Refrain]

4 But why should I think of the valley’s shade,
When Jesus my Lord may come,
For Him I am looking and not for death,
Come quickly, Lord Jesus, come. [Refrain]
