in the valley is the vision

“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 to have nothing is to possess all,

that to bear the cross is to wear the crown,

that the valley is the place of vision.

Let me find Thy light in my darkness,

Thy life in my death, Thy joy in my sorrow,

Thy glory in my valley.”

(The Valley of Vision, A Collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions)
