Skip or run, trudge or crawl
Each of us must go
Through some Valley in our lives
Many fast, and others deadly slow

The bag we pack to make the trek
Shows how weíll fare and take it
Attitude and fortitude
Are things that help us make it

Some can smile and hit a stride
With no plan to be defiant
The jolly part echoes outside
The Valley of some (ho-ho-ho) green giant

Others vague who think theyíre hip
Are Valley girls who canít surmise
Thereís meaning to this earthly trip
But grasping not who lives or dies

From Death Valley, never nice
To Valley Forge or famous River Red
Or place so low he paid the price
As untrue love gave cause to over hang his head

The Valley of the dolls, we know
Is all about those pills
That alter minds, which goes to show
Thereís other kinds of speed that kills

Thereís Shenandoah Ďs Valley bright
And Ohioís, famous as can be
With authority to charge for light
There's one in Tennessee

The Valley in Psalm twenty-three
Has such meaning to it
Itís only shadow of a death we see
And must not fear the walking through it

Godís rod and staff will comfort all
A bond we should not sever
He guides us through our Valley call
Then on to Dwell with Him forever.

So when itís forth you have to sallie
As you head for life's important goal
God will bring you through your Valley
But ...itís only HE who can restore your soul.
