He found me in the valley,
The valley of my soul;
With no purpose and no goal.
He walked with me along meadow paths,
Bringing calm to a weary mind;
Talk much…He did not,
He knew I needed this time.
He strolled with me through lush forests,
Knowing I'd need that shade;
A covering from the heat of day,
And, all the things upon my mind…that played.
As we sat down…beside a brook,
He placed His hand in mine;
I knew that peacefulness was coming,
But, that it would take time.
Oh, the joy of simply knowing,
That JESUS walks with us;
Even through the valleys,
Always…IN HIM we can trust.
He's always "been there" for us,
But, we must first be still;
Then, we can hear those precious Words,
"I love you and always will!"
