Low down in this beautiful valley,
Where love crowns the meek and the lowly,
Where dark seas of en-vy and fol-ly,
May roll on their billows in vain,
The meek soul in humble subjection,
Shall here find un-sha-ken protection,
The soft gales of cheering reflection,
The mind soothed from sorrow and pain.

This low vale is far from contention,
Where no soul can dream of dissen-sion,
Nor dark wiles of evil invention,
Can find out this region of peace.
Oh! there, then the Lord will deliver,
And souls drink of this beautiful river,
Which flows peace forever and ever,
And love's joys shall ever increase.

Come, drop, drop the tear of con-trition,
And yield to the spirit's direction;
And come make the noble confession,
And bow to the Saviour also.

Then rise, rise to walk in his favor,
And show by your constant behavior,
That Chris is your King and your Saviour,
From sin, from death, from sorrow and woe.
