IF IT TAKES A VALLEY

Joel Lindsey and Sue C. Smith 


There’s been times when I’ve believed Your approval
Means a life that’s free from pain.
Yet how many saints I know about have served You
Without any earthly gain.
In their suffering they discovered Your sufficiency
And maybe sacrifice is where Your sweetest blessings wait for me.

If it takes a valley to really know your grace
Or if it’s in the desert where I’ll meet you face to face
Then turn the path I’m traveling to some dark and lonely place
Cause if it takes a valley, then a valley’s what I’ll take.

Have I mentioned that I’m clinging to Your promise
That I’m safe within Your will
Have I told You how it feels to face the enemy
And know You are greater still
Guess I had to walk through danger, Lord, so You could show
The way You’d cover me with mercy and You’d never let me go.

If it takes a valley to really know your grace
Or if it’s in the desert where I’ll meet you face to face
Then turn the path I’m traveling to some dark and lonely place
Cause if it takes a valley, then a valley’s what I’ll take.

I’m not saying circumstances never cause me fear
I’m just believing there is a purpose and even when it isn’t clear

If it takes a valley to really know your grace
Or if it’s in the desert where I’ll meet you face to face
Then turn the path I’m traveling to some dark and lonely place
Cause if it takes a valley, then a valley’s what I’ll take.
