Victory in the valley


Who needs a candle
When the sun rises in my heart?
For the light of Christ consumes all else
And it quenches every fiery dart

The Lord is a sun and a shield to me
He is the sun and the moon and the stars
All darkness flees before my precious Lord
For He has broken all the iron bars

Gates of bronze, chains and fetters
Opened and broken and swept away
As He hung on the cross and said ' it is finished, '
As He hung on the cross and showed us the way

He arose, He arose He arose triumphant
He calls to His children ' arise with me, '
Come and walk, come and walk in the light of my presence
Come and walk in the light of my victory

I am the Way and the Truth and your Life
No one comes to the Father but by me
Will you come and die and rise again
Will you follow the path to Calvary?

Will you take up your cross and follow your King
Through the fires of hell if you must?
Will the world see in you, something of Him?
Will the world see a child-like trust?

Yeah though you walk through the valley of death
And there is darkness all around
Be of good cheer for your Lord is near
And there is mercy at the throne to be found

Even this darkness is light to Him
And the desert becomes like a river
Your valley of tears will become a door of hope
And you will dwell in His arms forever!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
