God of the Mountain! God of the Valley!

God of the Mountain! God of the Valley!

Sitting high on the mountain top looking down,
My mind grows quiet and my heart’s filled with peace.
Spread our below me in quiet beauty
The tranquility causes anxieties to cease.

I don’t see the fighting, the killing, or sickness;
I hear no vile language, no crying or anger.
From here the valley seems so far away;
Free from all sadness, suff’ring and danger.

My eyes might not see and ears may not hear,
But I know there’s much sorrow and suff’ring below
And though it’s been good to spend time on the mountain,
To the valley God’s calling, and back I must go.

Now refreshed and renewed, God’s leading me on
To serve Him and share Him with others each day.
To show forth His love and grace to those
Who are lonely, troubled, and filled with dismay.

There in the valley, I’ll grow weary I know,
And have my share of burdens to bear,
But I’ll cling to the promise His grace is sufficient…
He’ll not leave or forsake me, I’m safe in His care

When the valley gets tough, I’ll hope for the time
When again, on the mountain top I’ll rest.
But whether it’s the valley or the mountain so high,
The Lord Jesus is with me and I’m richly blest.

Surely the greatest lessons are learned,
As we walk through the valley of pain;
Where truly the Lord’s in control of each day
Be it kissed by the sun, or drenched by the rain.

But, O the pure joy when His Hand reaches out
And leads us again to that high splendid place
At the top of the mountain where we lift up our praise
For His wonderful love and marvelous grace.
