I have stood upon the mountain

Full Text

1 I have stood upon the mountain,
And have looked beyond the sea,
O’er the lovely fields of promise
In a land so dear to me.
And my soul with bliss enchanted,
Heard the echo of a song,
That my tongue shall sing forever,
When I join the ransomed throng.

2 Thro' the waters of affliction,
With my Saviour I have passed,
But His arms were still around me,
And my care on Him I cast,
Even there, my soul uplifted,
Heard the echo of a song,
That my tongue shall sing forever,
When I join the ransomed throng.

3 I can bear my cross with patience,
For I know the time will come,
When among the tried and faithful,
I shall gather safely home,
And my toil will seem as nothing,
To the rapture of the song,
That my tongue shall sing forever,
When I join the ransomed throng.
