Songs in the Night
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 through some valley of trouble
His powerful hand we can trace;
For the trials and sorrows He sends us
Are part of His lessons of grace.
Oft we shrink from the pruging and pruning,
Forgetting the Husbandman knows
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 through life's shadowed valley,
Fresh spring of His love ever rise;
And we learn taht our sorrows and losses
Are blessings just sent in disguise.
So we'll follow wherever He leadeth,
Though pauthways be dreary or bright;
For we've proof that our God can give comfort,
Our God can give songs in the night.
