She lays still, she has for ten thousand years or more
The lady of the valley’s got a heart beat of stone
When I see her, I know that I am home

I’ve hidden many times, in her motherly arms
Like a child cradled there, till the violent storm has past
Gold rolling through her cold veins, to the river down below
When I see her, I know that I am home

I cast my eyes to the hills
Where does my help come?
When my head is lifted I see your stoney form
Reminding me I have a home, and my help comes from The Lord
My help comes from You, Lord

There are too many stories of how, greed can kill a man
She told me all her gold is for the fools
For what we see as valuable, it surely is worth nothing
And what we see as nothing
Is more priceless than we’ll know

She’ll always lay alone there, it’s her duty to do so
Surveying the surveyors’, what will she behold?
The lady of the valley, has seen and how she knows
That water cannot satisfy, those who thirst for gold
Those who thirst for gold, no
Those who thirst for gold
