60849, A rose in the valley
Posted by ms mimi diva, Tue Oct-03-06 03:30 PM
I know it is hard to read this without "hearing" but one of the latest songs coming out my head.


Scriptural Basis

Psalm 23 (NIV)
A psalm of David.
4 Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;

Song 2:1,6-8,16 (NIV) I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys...

Luke 12:27 (Wey) "Observe the lilies, how they grow. They neither labor nor spin. And yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was as beautifully dressed as one of these."



A Rose in the Valley

i.
There is a rose in the valley and it grows
There is a rose in the valley and it grows
Though I may walk
Though I may walk
Though I may walk

I know Iím not alone


Poem
Give in to the wind
And lean in
But never allow my joy to be stolen
Or my legs to become unstable
I know that I can walk now only because
Heís able
I trek because He tries
I smile because He cries
I live because he dies
His grace is sufficient for even this remnant

There is a lily in the valley and it grows

Though I may walk
Though I may walk
Though I may walk

I know Iím not alone

Poem
Give in to the wind
And lean in
But never allow my joy to be stolen
Or my legs to become unstable
I know that I can walk now only because
Heís able
I trek because He tries
I smile because He cries
I live because he dies
So I rest my laurels on no one but
Him whose head shall be crowned
Iíve been forgotten so long in lost
That I donít know if I remember found
But I believe that life breathes
Releases my promise in my pain
Even the forgotten earth calls out his name
His name


bridge
I have struggled
With God and man
Victory is in His hand
I have labored
Been favored
But Lord I have
Fought the good fight
Entrusted You with my life

iii.
There is a song in the valley and itís Yours
There is a song in the valley and itís Yours
Though you may walk
Though you may walk
Though you may walk
Though you may walk
Though you may walk
Though you may walk

You are not alone
Not alone
Not alone
