    Default Translation: "The Lily of the Valley" and the chorus "My soul does magnify the Lord"

    I am looking for translations for the hymn - "He's the Lily of the Valley" which begins "I have found a friend in Jesus, He's everything to me..."

    also for a chorus,"My soul does magnify the Lord"

    HELP?

    He's the Lily of the Valley/En Cristo Hallo Amigo

    The English version uses the same chorus while the Spanish version doesn't seem to repeat a chorus

    He's the Lily of the Valley

    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

    Chorus:

    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 tower
    I have all for Him forsaken and all my idols torn
    From my heart, and now He keeps me by His power
    Though all the world forsake me, and Satan tempts me sore
    Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal

    Chorus

    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
    With 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

    Chorus

    En Cristo Hallo Amigo

    1. En Cristo hallo amigo y amante Salvador
    Contaré, pues, cuanto ha hecho Él por mí
    Hallándome perdido e indigno pecador
    Rescatóme y hoy me guarda para Sí
    Me salva del pecado, me guarda de Satán
    Promete estar conmigo siempre aquí
    Consuela mi tristeza, me quita todo afán
    Grandes cosas Cristo ha hecho ya por mí

    2. Jesús jamás me falta, jamás me dejará
    Es mi fuerte y poderoso protector
    Del mundo hoy me aparto, de toda vanidad
    Para consagrar la vida a mi Señor
    Si el mundo me persigue, si sufro tentación
    Confiando en Él podré vencer aquí
    Segura es la victoria, y elevo mi canción
    Grandes cosas Cristo ha hecho ya por mí

    3. Bien sé que Cristo en gloria muy pronto volverá
    Y entre tanto me prepara un bello hogar
    En la casa de mi Padre, mansión de luz y paz
    El creyente fiel con Él ha de morar
    Y entrado en Su gloria, pesar no sentiré
    Pues contemplaré Su rostro siempre allí
    Con los santos redimidos gozoso cantaré
    Grandes cosas Cristo ha hecho ya por mí

    It's an old-time hymn but a good one nonetheless.

    We are singing this one this week - perfect timing - thanks so much for sharing that!!!! I have a copy of the Himnario Bautista (©1978), and it's on my 'to do' list to go through these lyrics to match with songs we sing, but that will be after school is out in two weeks... and I suspect that it may be in their since it is a well-known song - but my copy of the Himnario has no music, just lyrics, and of course, no English cross-reference. Our church typically does blended worship where I pair an older hymn with a newer chorus. It works for us!

    I so appreciate you taking the time to share this with me!

    Did you need the musical chords to this song? It's in the Adventist Spanish hymnal as well and one of the favorites at my church. This hymn is not on my website because I don't put too many hymns there, only a few.

    You are so kind to ask - I actually have the music in a couple of hymnals. My comment about the hymnario not having music was that since the index is in Spanish, and there are many songs, such as Lily of the Valley that the title is not a direct translation in Spanish, so I am having to research a little for some of them to figure out exactly what English song some of the Spanish titles match up to.

    After school is out in a few weeks, I plan to work on that project. I've taken to sticking my hymnario in my purse and when I have a few moments will look at a couple of songs and mentally try to match up music to the words - I've identified more than a dozen that way...

    Thank you so much for offering the music, though - I really appreciate it very much!
