SOMETIMES LIFE SEEMS HARD TO BEAR

SOMETIMES LIFE SEEMS HARD TO BEAR
---------------------------------------
Full of sorrow, trouble, and woe,
its then I have to remember
...that it's in the valleys I grow.

If I always stayed on the mountain top
...and never experienced pain,

I would never appreciate Allah’s love
And would be living in vain.
I have so much to learn

And my growth is very slow,
Sometimes I need the mountain tops,
But it's in the valleys I grow.

I do not always understand
Why things happen as they do,
But I am very sure of one thing.
My Allah will see me through

Forgive me Allah, for complaining
When I'm feeling so very low.
Just give me a gentle reminder
That it's in the valleys I grow

Continue to strengthen me, Allah
And use my life each day
To share your love with others
And help them find their way.

Thank you for valleys, O Allah
For this one thing I know
The mountain tops are glorious
But it's in the valleys I grow.
