The Mountain I’m Climbing


The mountain I’m climbing is so steep,
I have so far to go.
Each step I take is a struggle for me,
I go so very slow.
I keep looking back wondering if,
This is too hard for me,
Maybe I should just turn around,
For the peak I still can’t see.

I’m tired and weak but I keep heading up,
The top seems much further now.
I slow down some more for I’m filled with pain,
How can I do this, how?
I know there’s a reason I face this steep hill,
But that reason is unclear.
So many questions fill me with doubt,
Right now it’s all I can hear.

Part of me wants to just give up,
And walk away from it all.
But God loves me and won’t let me give up,
He’ll never let me fall.
I know He’s the reason I still have hope,
Why I keep going on.
For He is with me giving me strength,
His help is never gone.

He is the reason that I believe,
That things will get better soon.
When I feel sad or overwhelmed,
He fills my heart with a tune.
No matter how high my mountain can get,
I don’t have to climb it alone.
For Jesus, my best friend is by my side,
I’m never on my own.

The mountain I’m climbing is still steep,
But I’m keeping my eyes on the Lord.
At times I feel I just can’t go on.
Then I feel His love being poured.
It flows like a fountain all over me,
Giving me strength all day long.
And when I’m too weak He carries me,
Until I am feeling strong.
