Sometimes life seems hard to bear,
full of sorrow, trouble and woe,
it is then I have to remember,
that it's in the valley I grow.
If I always stayed on the mountain top
and never experienced pain,
I would never appreciate God's love
and would be living in vain.
I have so much to learn
and my growth is very slow,
sometimes I need the mountain tops
but its in the valleys I grow.
I do not always understand,
why things happen as they do,
but I am very sure of one thing,
My Lord will see me through.
My little valleys are nothing,
when I picture Christ on the cross.
He went though the valley of death,
His victory was Satan's loss.
Forgive me Lord, for complaining,
when I am feeling very low,
just give me a gentle reminder,
that its in the valleys I grow.
Come to strengthen me Lord,
and use my life each day,
to share love with others
and help them find their way.
Thank You for the valleys,
Lord for this one thing I know,
the mountain tops are glorious,
but it's in the valleys I grow.
May we all remember the valleys,
no matter how low,
and understand that the happy, glorious, fun times are great,
but it's in the valley we grow.
