It’s In The Valleys I Grow

It’s In The Valleys I Grow by Jane Eggleston

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 to go to the mountaintops,

But it's 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 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!
