Going Down the Valley One By One

Going Down the Valley One By One

We are going down the valley one by one
With our faces toward the setting of the sun
Down in the valley where the mournful cypress grows
Where the streams of death in silence onward flows

  We are going down the valley
  Going down the valley
  Going toward the setting of the sun
  We are going down the valley
  Going down the valley
  We are going down the valley one by one

We are going down the valley one by one
Human comrades, you and I will ne'er have none;
But we will meet with rapture iun the sky
We will all be changed, but some will never die.

We are going down the valley one by one
Yet before the shadowed veil will come the dawn,
And a gentle hand will lead us lest we fall,
Christ is going down the valley with us all.

We are going down the valley one by one
When the labors of this weary world is done;
When the labors of this weary world is past
We shall stand upon the river bank at last.

We are going down the valley one by one
As the Blessed Father stands before His Son;
In sacramental vestige angels sing
Sounds of joy, of peace, of hope, around us ring.
