Down in the valley with my Savior I would go

Down in the valley with my Savior I would go,
Where the flowers are blooming and the sweet waters flow;
Everywhere He leads me I would follow, follow on,
Walking in His footsteps till the crown be won.
  Follow! follow! I would follow Jesus!
Anywhere, everywhere, I would follow on!
Follow! follow! I would follow Jesus!
  Everywhere He leads me I would follow on!
Down in the valley with my Savior I would go,
Where the storms are sweeping and the dark waters flow;
With His hand to lead me I will never, never fear,
Dangers cannot fright me if my Lord is near.
Down in the valley, or upon the mountain steep,
Close beside my Savior would my heart ever keep;
He will lead me safely in the path that He has trod,
Up to where they gather in the rest of God.

It is one of those songs I have not heard or sung in a long while. Been on my mind all week this week. I believe in Christian Hymns # 2. Great song.

I have had this song on my mind for some time. I could only remember most of the first verse. My Dad was a song leader at the Church of Christ in Richmond, Virginia (1960's). When l am still and close my eyes, l can still hear the Church singing that song!



This hymn brings back sweet memories of growing up with my grandfather. We had worship every morning at six o'clock and this was one of the many hymns we sang in those days. O how I long to meet him in the kingdom of God.

From my Sunday School Days in the German Evangelical and Reformed Church in St. Louis. The words are slightly different, but the idea is the same.

Down in the valley. YES I WAS DOWN TO NOTHING. But GOD WAS UP TO SOMETHING. Yes He was my provider. He is my provider and will be my Provider.
