1. Like Lot and his kindred, vain worldling,
Thou'rt down in the valley of sin;
Escape with thy life to the mountain!
This moment the journey begin.
Escape with thy life to the mountain,
The valley of sin leave behind.
Upward haste! look not back
And pardon and peace thou shalt find.
2. This mountain of mercy poor sinner,
Hath God in his goodness prepared;
That He will those save who ascend it,
He oft in His word hath declared. [Chorus]
3. With Jesus the ascent is easy,
With Jesus alone canst thou go;
He'll guide thee away to the summit,
And help thee o'ercome ev'ry foe. [Chorus]
4. Oh, trust to His guidance, poor sinner,
Through paths of contrition He'll lead,
But upward and onward forever,
To heights that are wondrous indeed. [Chorus]
