Mountains and Valley.

The Valleys of Life

          Iíve viewed the world from lofty heights
          Iíve flown just like a dove
          Iíve perched upon the highest crest
          On mountaintops above.

          Iíve seen the towering snow-capped peaks
          Where eagles dare to fly
          Iíve touched the moon, the universe
          Iíve soared across the sky.

          From up above to valleys deep
          Iíve lived so brave and bold
          But now Iím slowing down a bit
          I know Iím growing 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
          Like fireflies in the night.

          Thinking back on younger years
          I always soared up high
          Iím living in the valley now
          My time on earth is nigh.

          In valleys there is blessed peace
          I never feel alone
          Iíll walk in fertile pastures
          Till my Saviour calls me home.
