The Valleys of Life



THE VALLEYS OF LIFE

 

The Valley's of Life

 

I've viewed the world from lofty heights

I've flown just like a dove

I've perched up the highest crest

On mountaintops above.

 

I've seen the towering snow-capped peaks

Where eagles dare to fly

I've touched the moon, the universe

I've soared across the sky.

 

From up above to valleys deep

I've lived so brave and bold

But now I'm slowing down a bit

I know I'm getting old.

 

 Just like the blazing sun that sets

The years have slipped away

I stop beside a peaceful stream

And close my eyes to pray.

 

No longer do I rise above

The mountaintops on high

But down below, I quietly go

Where sheep and cattle lie.

 

I stroll across a field of grain

Such beauty spilling over

A prairie filled with grass so green

A meadow full of clover.

 

I venture to the woodlands

Where a cricket can be heard

The sights and sounds are so profound

The chirping of a bird.

 

Walking down a faded path

I relish in delight

The countryside has come to life

Life fireflies in the night.

 

Thinking back on younger years

I've always soared up high

I'm living in the valley now

My time on earth is nigh.

 

In valleys there is blessed peace

I never feel alone

I'll walk in fertile pastures

Till my Saviour calls me home.
