> > > It's In the Valleys That I Grow > > >

 

Sometimes life seems hard to bear,
Full of sorrow, trouble, and woe
It's then I have to remember
That it's in the valleys I grow.
If I always stayed on the mountain top
And never experienced pain,
I would never appreciate Jesus' 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 it's in the valleys that I grow.
I do not always understand
Why things happen as they do,
But I am very sure of one thing.
Jesus will see me through
My little valleys are nothing >
When I picture Jesus on the cross
He went through the valley of death;
His victory was Satan's loss.
Forgive me Jesus, for complaining
When I'm feeling so very low.
Just give me a gentle reminder
That it's in the valleys that I grow.
Continue to strengthen me, Messiah
And use my life each day
To share your love with others
And help them find their way.
Thank you for the valleys, Jesus
For this one thing I know
The mountain tops are glorious
But it's in the valleys that I grow!
