Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.@Psalm 23:4

Thro’ the valley of the shadow,
Safe upon the other side,
All our weary conflict over,
There with Jesus satisfied.

Refrain

Thro’ the valley of the shadow,
Safe upon the other side,
All our weary conflict over,
There with Jesus satisfied.

There are depths we cannot fathom,
There are heights we cannot reach;
Lord, Thou knowest, only show us,
Every lesson Thou wouldst teach.

Refrain

Very precious is the trial
That uniteth us to Thee;
Sever e’en the dearest union,
So Thy glory we may see.
