As I climbed towards the mountain top,
I raised my eyes and looked above.
I could faintly see a majestic peak,
but the path to get there I could not see.
My heart grew faint and my soul did cry,
I cannot make it, I cannot try.
In anguish, I fell to my knees,
Lord, please send me thy light
so that I might see
a little of the path for me.
I know I can make it to the end
if thou thine hope to me can send.
I will trust and I will follow,
and bring with me all those I know.
I know this mountain
thou hast climbed and
already faced these challenges I find.
O, stay with me and never depart,
for to thee I give my heart.
