LILY OF THE VALLEY

       F                  F7
I have found a friend in Jesus
      Bb           F
He's everything to me
                                        C
He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.
C7       F           F7
He's the Lily of the Valley, 
    Bb          F
In Him alone I see
                          C        C7    F
All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole.


                BRIDGE:

F7   Bb                        F
In sorrow he's my comfort, in trouble he's my stay;
                                 C
He tells me every care on Him to roll;
C7       F            F7
He's the Lily of the Valley, 
    Bb                 F
The Bright and Shining Star;
                        C         C7    F
He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.


VERSE 2:
He all my grief has taken
and all my sorrows borne
In temptation He's my strong and mighty tow'r;
I've all for Him forsaken, and all my idols torn;
From my heart, and now He keeps me by His pow'r.

                BRIDGE:
Though all the world forsake me, 
and Satan tempt me sore
Thru Jesus I shall savely reach the goal;
He's the Lily of the Valley, 
the Bright and Shining Star;
He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.


He'll 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 manna He my hungry soul shall fill.

                BRIDGE:
Then sweeping up to Glory, to see His blessed face;
Where rivers of delight shall ever roll;
He's the Lily of the Valley, 
the Bright and Shining Star;
He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.
