Help me trust you in the valley
When the way is dark and drear.
Help my steps move ever onward
In your arms I need not fear.
Help me know that You are with me
when I feel so all alone.
When others may forsake me
You’ll not leave me here to roam.
Help me see You know the details
when others misconstrue.
You are ever, only for me
as I fix my eyes on You.
Help me see beyond this trouble
as I struggle with today.
Knowing you have planned my future
ever ordering my way.
Give me strength for each tomorrow
when today I’m overwhelmed.
Knowing strength comes as it’s needed
as I look to you for help.
Thank you, Father, for the valleys
as each one comes and goes.
For in them I find Your comfort
as You guide me safely home.
