[The fact that one might live in the Valley does not mean that one does not get glimpses of what lies beyond. Perhaps our stay in the Valley means that sometimes we see things more sharply and acutely than those whose natural habitat is outside the Valley. Sometimes, too, it is those glimpses that allow us to endure the Valley. I hope that you have found that that is so.

Paul says, But God has shown us how much he loves us—it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us! “ (Rom 5:8) I reckon that that is sufficient reason for glory to His name.]

Glory to Your Name:
You are the Son Of God Most High;
You have God’s Glory
But You laid it all aside;
You trod our road of flesh and pain,
Never shrinking from the task You had
To win us, to win us back to You again

And this I know, yes I really know:
You are the Saviour of the world;
By Your Death and Resurrection
We have freedom;
And though I am unworthy
Of Your great Love for me,
That Love will last forever —
Long past eternity

Glory to Your Name:
For You emptied Yourself for us
Though we did not deserve it
And we nailed You to a cross.
Even though reviled
You forgave those who cursed You
And Your arms, Your arms were open wide

And this I know, yes I really know:
You are the Saviour of the world;
By Your Death and Resurrection
We have freedom;
And though I am unworthy
Of Your great Love for me,
That Love will last forever —
Long past eternity

Glory to Your Name:
For we enter Your blest Presence
Where You rule in Majesty
And the veil is torn for us
You pour Your Spirit out on old and young
And trees burst into song
And the Living waters, the Living waters overflow

And this I know, yes I really know:
You are the Saviour of the world;
By Your Death and Resurrection we have freedom;
And though I am unworthy
Of Your great Love for me,
That Love will last forever —
Long past eternity
