Bless This Valley

Bless this valley and its people
Bless the seasons as they roll
Bring the water to the mountains
Bring your peace to Jackson Hole

As the mother guides its elk-child
To the mountains in the Spring
Guide your people to redemption
On the trails of self-esteem

Bless this valley and its people
Bring your love to Jackson Hole

Lord, teach us how to bear the burdens
Which are ours alone to bear
But, Lord, lend us all your strong hand
When the land is full of fear

Bless this valley and its people
Bring your strength to Jackson Hole

Lead my child to love, please Jesus
Teach this child to treasure all
Give children full lives in this world
Ease their pains and ease their falls

Bless this valley and its people
Bring your peace to Jackson Hole

Your love is like the rain and sunshine
Your love is like the wind and snow
It greens the willow by the rivers
It cleans the pine trees as it blows

Bless this valley and its people
Lord, lay your hand on Jackson Hole
