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 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 it's in the valley 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 through the valley of death;

His victory was Satan's loss.


Forgive me Lord, for complaining

When I'm feeling so very low,

Just give me a gentle reminder

That it's in the valleys I grow.


Continue to strengthen me, Lord

And use my life each day,

To share your love with others

And help them find their way.


Thank you for valleys, Lord

For this one thing I know,

The mountain tops are glorious

But it's in the valleys I grow....

Author: Jane Eggleston

There will be peace in the valley for me some day;
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh, Lord I pray;
There'll be no sadness, no sorrow, no trouble I'll see;
There will be peace in the valley for me.
