Goooooooooooood Morning SP Members! Here is an oldie: The words were created by Charles W. Fry in 1881, and the music by William S. Hays, also 1881. The inspiration for this hymn came from Rev 22:16: " A testimony to give unto us that Jesus is the root and offspring of David ( the fulfillment of the messianic promise), and the bright and morning star (the one to bring the in the new messianic kingdom).
HYMN TITLE: The Lily of The Valley
1. I have found a friend in Jesus, He's everything to me, He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul;
The Lily of the Valley, in Him alone I see All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole.
In sorrow He's my comfort, in trouble He's my stay, He tells me ev'ry care on Him to roll.
He's the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star, He's the faiest of ten thousand to my soul.
2. Oh, He all my griefs has taken, and all my sorrows borne, In temptation He's my strong and mighty tow'r;
I have all for Him forsaken, and all my idols torn From my heart, and now He keeps me by His pow'r.
Tho all the world forsake me, and Satan tempts me sore, Thru Jesus I shall safely reach the goal.
He's the Lily of he Valley, the Bright and Morning Star, He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.
3. He will never, never leave me, nor yet forsake me here, While I live by faith and do His blessed will;
A wall of fire about me, I've nothing now to fear, With His mamna He my hungry soul shall fill.
Then sweeping up to glory to see His blessed face, Where rivers of delight shall ever roll.
He's the Lily of the Valley, theBright and Morning Star, He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.
Have A Wonderful Weekend! In His Love, Vic.
