I must walk thro’ the valley and the shadow,
But I’ll journey in a loving Savior’s care;
He hath said He will never, never leave me,
With His staff He will comfort me there.
Thro’ the valley, thro’ the valley,
Thro’ the valley and the shadow I must go;
But the dark waves of Jordan will not harm me,
There is peace in the valley, I know.
When I walk thro’ the valley and the shadow,
All the weary days of toiling will be o’er;
For the strong arms of Jesus will enfold me,
And with Him I shall sorrow no more.
Tho’ I walk thro’ the valley and the shadow,
Yet the glory of the dawning I shall see;
I shall join in the anthems over Jordan,
Where the loved ones are waiting for me.
I shall walk thro’ the valley and the shadow,
I shall follow where my Lord has gone before;
Thro’ the mists of the valley He will lead me,
Till I rest on the evergreen shore.
