"I have been through the 'Valley Of Weeping', the valley of sorrow and pain;
but the 'God of all comfort' was with me, at-hand to uphold and sustain.

"As the earth needs the clouds and the sunshine, our souls need both sorrow and joy;
so He places us oft in the furnace, the dross from the gold to destroy.

"When He leads thru some valley of trouble, His Omnipotent hand we trace;
for the trials and sorrows He sends us, are a part of His lessons in grace.

"Oft we shrink from the purging and pruning, forgetting the Husbandman knows;
that the deeper the cutting and paring, the richer the cluster that grows!

"Well He knows that affliction is needed; He has a wise purpose in view,
and in the dark valley He whispers, 'Hereafter thou'lt know what I do!'.

"As we travel thru life's shadowed valley, fresh springs of His love ever rise;
and we learn that our sorrows and losses, are blessings just sent in disguise.

"So we'll follow wherever He leadeth, let the path be dreary or bright;
for we've proved that our God can give comfort; our God can give songs in the night!"
