Lily of the Valley

Hello Friends, I have a card to share with you today that I've made for my Mom.  She loves the lilly of the valley flowers and also used to sing this hymn which has a special place in my heart.  
I have used some papers by Graphic 45 called Secret Garden collection, along with some lace, a couple crocheted flowers, a great old button (actually from my Mom, I wonder if she'll remember it.) and some pearls.  I hope you enjoy this and I hope that she'll get this in the mail soon.  

  1. 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.
  2. He all my grief has taken, and all my sorrows borne;
    In temptation He’s my strong and mighty tow’r;
    I have all for Him forsaken, and all my idols torn
    From my heart and now He keeps me by His pow’r.
    Though all the world forsake me, and Satan tempt me sore,
    Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal.
  3. He will never, never leave me, nor yet forsake me here,
    While I live by faith and do His blessed will;
    A wall of fire about me, I’ve nothing now to fear,
    From His manna He my hungry soul shall fill.
    Then sweeping up to glory to see His blessed face,
    Where rivers of delight shall ever roll.
  4. -Charles W. Fry

Do you know this hymn?  I am so strengthened by it, as it is a reminder that the Lord Jesus is my stay, the one that has saved and forgiven me and the one in whom I can rest all my cares at His feet.  What a marvellous Saviour, what a caring God!
I am sharing this at Word Art Wednesday this week.
