Dwell on the mountain

Representative Text

1 Dwell on the mountain, ‘tis the privilege to know
The height of God’s love to his children below;
Why live in the valley when he calleth thee
To rise above the dark’ning clouds his light to see?

Dwell on the mountain where the view is clear,
Climb to its tow’ring peak and to thy Lord be near;
Haste from the valley so dark and drear,
And stand upon the mountain where the view is clear.

2 Dwell on the mountain, ‘tis the Lord that calleth thee
To rise ‘bove the world, from its sin to be free;
Arise to the call of God, O why delay,
Why labor on in darkness when his gift is day? [Refrain]

3 Dwell on the mountain, ‘tis Jehovah’s high command,
He bids thee go up and possess the goodly land;
There he now awaits us, we shall victors be,
And wear a heav’nly crown thro’out eternity. [Refrain]
