1 Valley lilies, meek and lowly,
Let me hear your message sweet,
Tell of Christ the pure and holy,

Speak again your message rare;
Testify to me of Jesus,
Heaven's Lily, wondrous fair!

For you tell in perfumed language,
How he wrought his Father's will. [Refrain]

3 Valley lilies, cups inverted,
Still the Master you proclaim:
Empty of all pomp and glory,
To redeem the world He came. [Refrain]
