You know, O Lord, the desires of my heart
Wisdom and knowledge to me impart
I long to serve you and do your will
Help me to climb this long steep hill

When I reach the long awaited top
And behold your wonders as I stop
Renew my strength, my faith, my zeal
Let me once more your presence feel

Let your great love envelope me
And your glory and power let me see
The valley has been deep and drear
Your sweet voice I long to hear

When you deliver me from this wilderness
I will tell others of your love and faithfulness
This wilderness time has not been in vain
Sweet fellowship with you I did gain

Valleys and hills are all a part of life's plan
So we can learn to trust Jesus, not man
The top of the hill is in sight
How I rejoice, I have fought the good fight

You have set the times and the seasons
For the valleys you have your reasons
Thank you, O Lord, for your wise ways
You know the number of our days
