    The gem cannot be
    polished without friction, and
    Gold refines through fire

    So it follows that
    man is perfected through trials.
    He goes through to grow

    it's in the valley
    that one becomes strengthen
    for the new journey

    MY STRENGTH IS SAPPED
    I GO WITHIN MY DEEP
    PULLING MYSELF UP
    FOR I AM WEAK

    THE VALLEY IS DARKEST
    BEFORE THE DAWN
    I STRUGGLE TO EMERGE

    MY GEM HAS BEEN POLISHED
    AS I STEP OUT OF THE FIRE
    I AM REFINED

    As a rare jewel gem
    my stone shine by strengthing me
    to cast my walk through
