The Mountain
Song by Steven Curtis Chapman

I want to build a house up on this mountain
Way up high where the peaceful waters flow
To quench my thirsty soul
Up on the mountain.

I can see for miles up on this mountain
Troubles seem so small they almost disappear
Lord, I love it here
Up on the mountain.

My faith is strengthened by all that I see
You make it easy for me to believe
Up on the mountain.

I would love to live up on this mountain
And keep the pain of living life so far away
But I know I can't stay
Up on the mountain.

I said I'd go, Lord, wherever You lead
For where You are is where I most want to be
And I can tell we're headed for the valley,
My faith is strengthened by all that I've seen
So Lord help me remember what You've shown me

Up on the mountain.

You bring me up here on the mountain
For me to rest and learn and grow
I see the truth up on the mountain
And carry it to the world far below

So as I go down to the valley
Knowing that you will go with me
This is my prayer:
Lord, help me to remember
What You've shown me
Up on the mountain.

I cherish these times up on the mountain,
But I can leave this place because I know
Someday you'll take me home
To live forever...
Up on the mountain.
