When Storms Hit The Valley

I find a sweet peace within me
When I shouldn’t have peace at all
It arrives when the storm is raging
And the waves are gathered tall
The wind howls fiercely around me
I feel overwhelmed and afraid
When His peace settles in to calm me
And my worry is turned to faith

Then joy comes and wraps around me
And replaces my worry and fear
I now know this storm will not harm me
His joy makes my eyes shed a tear
It instills a deep hope within me
A hope that is steadfast and sure
That He’ll walk with me all the way
As long as this storm endures

What mercy
What grace
What love He shows me
As He stays by my side
When storms hit the valley
What mercy
What grace
I lift up His name
That glorious name
The wonderful name of Jesus

Then I feel His love deep inside me
Welling up in my spirit and mind
It overtakes every heartache
To know that this love is all mine
I lift up my voice rejoicing
Relieved of the storm that did rage
I sit here content in His presence
Knowing He covers me with His grace

What mercy
What grace
What love He shows me
As He stays by my side
When storms hit the valley
What mercy
What grace
I lift up His name
That Glorious name
The wonderful name of Jesus

I don’t need to fear or wander in doubt
I don’t need to panic or have worry cry out
I don’t need to question what life’s all about
I only need Jesus. He’ll find a way out

What mercy
What grace
What love He shows me
As He stays by my side
When storms hit the valley
What mercy
What grace
I lift up His name
That Glorious name
The wonderful name of Jesus

Sheltering Wing

I look to the Lord for answers
When questions are all that I have
I look to the Lord for direction
When may path has taken a curve

I look to the Lord for healing
When my health has been not so good
I look to the Lord for wisdom
When I know I’ve been misunderstood

He says peace
Come into me and find peace
All that you look for you’ll find
Under my sheltering wing
Peace
Don’t let your worry arise
Tomorrow is in my hand
Grace will always apply
And bring peace

I look to the Lord for patience
When the answers are taking to long
I look to the Lord for His strength
When all of my strength is gone

I look to the Lord for provision
When there seems to be lack in my house
I look to the Lord for all my needs
For He is my ultimate source

He is always right there
Giving ear to my prayer
He inclines to me each time I speak
His answers will come
When His timing is done
He will bring me the needs that I seek

Until then
He says peace
Come into me and find peace
All that you look for you’ll find
Under my sheltering wing
Peace
Don’t let your worry arise
Tomorrow is in my hand
Grace will always apply
And bring peace
