There’ll Be No Dark Valley

Play

This is such an encouraging hymn, with its simple repetitive message. It was used widely by Ira Sankey in his evangelistic campaigns.

Cushing went through a dark valley in his life with the death of his wife and the lost of his voice. We will also have our dark valleys in life. But thank God that these will come to past one day when the Lord Jesus comes. Amen!

Lyrics: William O. Cushing
Music: Ira D. Sankey

There’ll be no dark valley when Jesus comes,
There’ll be no dark valley when Jesus comes;
There’ll be no dark valley when Jesus comes
To gather His loved ones home.

Refrain:
To gather His loved ones home (safe home),
To gather His loved ones home (safe home);
There’ll be no dark valley when Jesus comes
To gather His loved ones home.

There’ll be no more sorrow when Jesus comes,
There’ll be no more sorrow when Jesus comes;
But a glorious morrow when Jesus comes
To gather His loved ones home.

There’ll be no more weeping when Jesus comes,
There’ll be no more weeping when Jesus comes;
But a blessed reaping when Jesus comes
To gather His loved ones home.

There’ll be songs of greeting when Jesus comes,
There’ll be songs of greeting when Jesus comes;
And a joyful meeting when Jesus comes
To gather His loved ones home.

I played all four stanzas and slowed down for the last stanza. Hope you like this rendition.

    Thanks for posting William Cushing/Ira Sankey’s gospel song, “There’ll Be No Dark Valley.” Looks like you’re one of the few sites to include it or comment on it. The song has the feel of what used to be called negro spirituals. It is repetitive, yes, but it contains a powerful and biblical message, based in part on Rev. 21:4. God bless.
