Lyrics~ Eva/ Arr. H&H

An original song reflecting on the pressures of life's unknown and the faith that all things unfold as planned.

lyrics

In the valley of darkness, I'm walkin alone
I've got my heart in a cradle
Cause everything's gone all wrong again
I might lose my footsteps, my light flicker in the wind
But as the dawn will rise, I'll see my way again

Trouble on Monday, Tuesday's so cold
Gettin' down on the weekend, it won't ease this weary soul
Take me back to that place where, life was simple and fine
Oh Lord take me back, take me back to that blessed time

In the valley of darkness, I'm walkin alone
I've got my heart in a cradle
Cause everything's gone all wrong again
I might lose my footsteps, my light flicker in the wind
But as the dawn will rise, I'll see my way again

Old habits might cost me, I can't bear to let em go
They might be takin' me under, but where else can I go
It's gonna take somethin' bigger, than myself to set me free
I'm prayin' good lord, I hope your grace can reach me

In the valley of darkness, I'm walkin alone
I've got my heart in a cradle
Cause everything's gone all wrong again
I might lose my footsteps, my light flicker in the wind
But as the dawn will rise, I'll see my way again

In the valley of darkness, I'm walkin alone
I've got my heart in a cradle
Cause everything's gone all wrong again
I might lose my footsteps, my light flicker in the wind
But as the dawn will rise, I'll see my way again
