Shadow of Death
When I entered the valley,
You seemed so far away from me.
My cries seemed unheard there.
I was afraid of what I did need.
Will this last forever; I said?
Will you come rescue me?
The enemy was in the valley.
My sin condemned even me.
The battle did rage not where I could see.
It raged in my spirit of unbelief.
I felt so all alone and I just couldn’t see,
They had already been won for you and me.
When I walked through the valley,
The pain was so severe,
The shame and the guilt,
Only gave me a spirit of fear.
My heart spoke with selfish conceit.
I could only think of what I did need.
As He had promised,
I was made clean.
As He had promised,
He was there with me.
My sorrow led me to Him
In whom I had once believed.
I hung on to His mercies.
He renewed His spirit in me.
Though I walked through the valley,
I was spared the death I found there.
Though I surely deserved my fate,
God came to me not too late.
I confessed I was living in sin.
I acknowledged His authority again.
I feared only Him.
Not the enemy within.
In the midst of the valley,
His perfect timing found me.
He gave me the faith
And the trust to believe,
My refuge is found in Him.
It is never found in me.
In that desolate valley of death,
He gave me life with His breath.
He heard all my cries.
He was near me all the time.
Though I walked through the
“Valley of the shadow of death”.
As God had promised,
His grace covered me.
