Through The Valley

You walk through the valley
So dark and so deep,
The low clouds oppress you,
The mountain is steep.

No faith can you muster,
No will to go on,
You're desperate and needy
And wish to be gone.

You'd love to sprout wings
And fly far away,
Yet you know you are trapped
And here you will stay.

Come into His presence
Releasing your care,
The load will be lifted
As you wait in prayer.

God knows your desire,
He knows you are weak,
Confess your frustration,
The future that's bleak.

His presence brings comfort,
Refreshment like rain,
His Spirit works in you
Releasing the strain.

He helps you remember
What He's brought you through
The troubles behind you,
The giants He slew.

He'll give you fresh courage
And strength to endure,
His presence is with you,
Your future is sure.

"The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you." Psalm 9:9-10 (NIV)
