Lord high and holy,

Meek and lowly,
You have brought me to the valley of vission
where I live in depths but see You in the hights;
hemmed in by mountains of sin I behold Thy glory!

Let me learn by paradox
that the way down is the way up,
that to be low is to be high,
that the broken heart is the healed heart,
that the contrite spirit is the rejoycing spirit,
that the repenting soul is the victorious soul,
that to have nothing is to posses all,
that to bear the cross is to wear the crown,
that to give is to receive,
that the valley is the place of vission!

Lord, in the daytime stars can be seen from deepest wells,
and the deeper the well, the brighter the stars shine!

Let me find Thy glory in my darkness,
Thy life in my death,
Thy joy in my sorrow,
Thy grace in my sin,
Thy riches in my poverty,
Thy glory in my valley!"
