Ah, don't let me grow bitter I pray
Give me strength to carry on my way
I'm leanin' on you like a wooden cane

Well, I'm walkin' through, I'm walkin' through
The valley of pain

I'm believin' there's a reason for this trial
This too shall pass in a little while
Oh, Lord have mercy if I complain

Well I'm walkin' through, I'm walkin' through
The valley of pain
Yes, I'm walkin' through, I'm walkin' through
The valley of pain

Paint me in a river of my tears
Whisper hope and truth, courage in my ears

Well, when I'm hurtin' I have a dangerous tongue
And I lose it and use it like a gun
Oh, wont you stop me if you see me takin' aim?

Well, I'm walkin through, I'm walkin' through
The valley of pain
If I'm walkin' through, I'm walkin 'through
The valley of pain
Yes, I'm walkin through, I'm walkin through
The valley of pain

Paint me in a river of my tears
Whisper hope and truth and courage in my ears
Remind me when I reach the other side
I'll be thankful for every tear that I cry

Ah, don't let me grow bitter I pray
Give me strength to carry on my way
Ah, don't let the darkness drive me insane

Well, I'm walkin through, I'm walkin through
The valley of pain
If I'm walkin through, I'm walkin through
The valley of pain
Yes, I'm walkin through, I'm walkin through
The valley of pain
