From Valleys to Hope



Dear Lord, You promised to put on us no more than we can bear,
Yet it seems that all around, is that black cloud of despair.

To keep my eyes upon You, seems much harder every day,
For circumstances often try to pull me down in every way.

It's sometimes very hard, Lord, out of the valley to climb,
But I trust You, and I know, that it will happen in Your time.

Lord, grant me Your wisdom, Your compassion, grace, and love,
In all that I must do, I need strength from you above.

Remind me, Lord, during hard times and tasks I must endure,
That Your loving arms enfold me, You're with me 'cause I'm Yours.

I remember that day long ago, when I first came to You,
You gave Your life that I may live, accepting You was all I need do.

You touched my heart, cleansed my soul, and therefore made me new,
Since then I've tried to grow in grace and just walk close to You.

For You're my loving father, You alone are worthy of praise,
And I thank You for the privilege of bowing before you all my days.

Thank You for helping get my eyes off me and things that I must do,
For reminding me this life is fleeting, and I'll spend eternity with you.

And if perhaps I should win a crown, when face to face we meet,
Then all these valleys will be forgotten, as I lay the crown at Jesus' feet.

For You're my Savior and Master, King of Kings and Lord of Lords,
And I praise You for You are worthy, to be praised forever more.




Cassie Memmer May 10, 1993
