Lily of the Valley


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 every care on Him to roll. 

Refrain: 
He’s the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star;
 He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.
~Charles W. Fry~

Although my Easter lilies are late blooming, I am glad The Lily of the Valley is always in season . . . always blooming . . . always adding beauty to our lives . . . and He's always on time - His time, not mine!

As a little girl growing up in upstate NY, so loved the lily of the valley. They grew along the side of my grandmother's home. Later as a Christian, I loved that precious song. Thank you for both a beautiful photo and bringing back wonderful memories to my heart today. Blessings.
