Even in the Valley
Even in the valley God is there.
In every situation He hears your prayers.
He is your help in fire, flame or flood.
He is the Truth and the Way; God is good.
At your highest or your lowest all the same,
There is no place or circumstance barred to Jesus’ name.
Jesus is the Word of God that spoke from the cross to man.
In His sacrifice, in your souls deepest valley, He reached out His hand.
Do you need wisdom, are you afraid?
Are you confused, or disappointed in decisions made?
Are you lonely, and have need for a friend?
Are you overburdened with troubles within?
Are you searching for something but you do not know
What it is you need to bring comfort to your soul?
Is sadness your companion night and day the same?
There is help call out Jesus’ name.
Even if your valley is deeper than is described in the words above.
Call out to Jesus; it is all covered in the realms of His love.
The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart;
and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous:
but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
