10. Mount of Blessing

1 I’ve been up the Mount with my Lord today,
In blessed communion along the way;
Tho’ He is a King and of royal birth,
He deigns to lift up the weak ones of earth.

O it is a glorious place to be,
And O what a wonder it is to me,
That my Saviour goes with me as I journey along,
And fills my soul with joy and with song.

2 He told of His own, His most gracious love,
And pleasures prepared for me above;
My heart was aglow with His blessed word,
Because of the presence of Christ my Lord. [Chorus]

3 He then brought me down by the waters still,
To the flow’ry vale where the songbirds trill;
In the pastures green I was led along,
Till my soul was filled with joy and with song. [Chorus]
