|I'm climbing a mountain so steep and so high,
The far distant top nearly reaches the sky,
Sometimes I grow weary I'm tempted to stop,
But God always tells me press on to the top,
For others before me these same paths have trod,
Every step I am taking brings me closer to God,
Just let me walk closer dear father I pray,
I'll keep on climbing by day and by night,
When I think I see the end of the road,
