From valley to valley out over the hilltops,
From sunshine to fog like the darkest of night;
So we follow the Lord down lifes winding pathway,
And walk much by faith and little by sight.
Twould be easy to see were His presence like lightning,
And easy to hear if like thunder His voice;
But He leads in the quiet by the voice of the Spirit,
And we follow in love for weve made Him our choice.
The path that we tread by the cross is oer shadowed,
And the glory at times by pain is made dim;
Temptations assail and the spirit grows weary,
Yet were ever sustained by the vision of Him.
The years of our lives be they few or be many,
Will soon pass away as dreams of the night;
Then well step through the portals on eternitys morning,
And greet Him in glory as faith turns to sight.
