"Well, I'm tired and so weary, but I must go on until my Lord comes and calls me away. Oh, yes! The night is as black as the sea, but Your lamp is my Light. There will be Peace in the valley for me someday. There will be Peace in the valley, oh, Lord I pray! There will be no sadness, sorrows, or troubles I will see when You come for me! How sweet will it be?" - Jesus Daily
