Looking for lyrics to "Valley of Peace," by Carrie E. E. Breck, a hymn or gospel song.

(Do not confuse with "Peace in the Valley," by Dorsey

This one?
There's an old broken lock on the old cabin door
The cracks and the holes in your cabin floor
It's a tumbled down shack, how I long to go back
And dwell in that shack evermore

cho:Peace, peace the valley of peace
    Where no sorrows are known
    Like a heaven, yes heaven to me it seems
    Peace, the valley my home

Though an old broken window, the light brightly shines
It twinkles and shines through the honeysuckle vines
By the old rustic well is my sweet little Nell
And for me I know how she pines

In the parlor a fire is burning so bright
The old rocking chair is empty tonight
That tumbled down shack is a palace to me
And that's where I'm longing to be

"This one? I honestly don't know. I am looking for a hymn by Breck, mentioned but not printed in the Cyberhymnal.

The song you post doesn't seem like a hymn. Where did it come from?
It sparks a faint memory, but I can't pull it in.

It's a more-or-less country and bluegrass standard.

Still looking for this hymn by Carrie Elizabeth Ellis Breck (1855-1934.
Several of her hymns are posted at Cyberhymnal, where this one is mentioned, but no information on the hymn, "Valley of Peace" seems to be on the internet.

Thanks for your help. "The Valley of Peace" you quoted was recorded by Charlie Monroe and a couple of others, but it lacks background information. Not in Traditional Ballad Index; posted in Bluegrass Messengers but no information; not previously posted at Mudcat.

In the Roud Index, a "Valley of Peace" is listed in the Flanders Collection (Middlebury College, Vermont) but no details.
It is not "We Will March through the Valley of Peace" (Allen, "Slave Songs") but the Breck hymn may have some relation to the Ollie Gilbert song in the Max Hunter Collection ("Father, Don't Grieve After Me") which includes the words "We will walk through the valley in peace."

Lyrics from The Phono-Bretto: (Phonograph Libretto) (New York: Phono-Bretto Company, ©1919); attribution from WorldCat.org; recording info from 78discography.com:


VALLEY OF PEACE
Words by Mrs. Frank A. Breck, arr. I. H. Meredith.
Copyright 1909 by Tullar-Meredith Co., New York.

1. There's a beautiful valley of peace,
Where the heart of the weary may rest;
Where tumult of trials may cease,
And those who are burdened be blest.

CHORUS: In the valley of peace, the valley of peace,
In the beautiful valley of peace,
My Saviour is there every burden to bear,
In the beautiful valley of peace.

2. In the valley of peace let me roam,
With Jesus my Staff and my Rod,
Till I come to my heavenly home,
Whose builder and maker is God.

[Recorded by Anthony & Harrison 2/2/1911 on Victor Record 16853; and by Chautauqua Preachers Quartet, ca 1917-18 on Pathe 20325.]

Thanks, that is the one. I have ordered a copy of the PHONO-BRETTO, looks like an interesting compendium.
