Full Text

1 Jesus, lead me up the mountain,
Where the whitest robes are seen,
Where the saints can see the fountain,
Where the pure are keeping clean.

Refrain:
Lead me higher up the mountain,
Give me fellowship with Thee;
In Thy light I see the fountain,
And the blood is cleansing me.

2 Higher up, where light increases,
Rich above all earthly good,
Where the life of sinning ceases,
Where the Spirit comes in floods— [Refrain]

3 Lead me higher, nothing dreading,
In the race to never stop,
In Thy footsteps keep me treading,
Give me grace to reach the top. [Refrain]

4 Save me better, make me surer,
Put me where the fire refines,
Where the breath of hope is purer,
Where the brightest glory shines. [Refrain]
