I have entered the valley
Of blessing so sweet,
And Jesus abides with me there;
And His Spirit and blood
Make my cleansing complete,
And His perfect love casteth out fear.


Oh, come to this valley of blessing so sweet,
Where Jesus will fullness bestow;
And believe, and receive, and confess Him,
That all His salvation may know.

There is peace in the valley
Of blessing so sweet,
And plenty the land doth impart;
And there’s rest for the weary,
Worn traveler’s feet,
And joy for the sorrowing heart.


There is love in the valley
Of blessing so sweet,
Such as none but the blood-washed may feel,
When Heaven comes down
Redeemed spirits to greet,
And Christ sets His covenant seal.


There’s a song in the valley
Of blessing so sweet,
And angels would fain join the strain,
As with rapturous praises
We bow at His feet,
Crying, Worthy the Lamb that was slain!
