Climbing Up The Mountain

print

   I’m climbing up the mountain and I’m going home
   Climbing up the mountain going stone by stone
   Climbing up the mountain when my work is done
   Climbing up the mountain to the sky

Moses freed his people from the pharaoh’s hand
Forty years they wandered through the desert sand
Led them out of Egypt to the promised land
And then he climbed on up to the mountain to the sky

Martin helped his people in a powerful fight
Led them in the struggle for the civil rights
Birmingham to Selma leading black and white
And then he climbed on up to the mountain to the sky

Each of us is given heaven’s work to do
Doesn’t take more courage than is granted you
Eye upon the prize and you can see it through
And then you’ll climb up on the mountain too
