Representative Text

1 My eyes are on the mountain top,
I’m running for my life,
I’ve left old Sodom to the flames,
With all its sin and strife.

Refrain:
I’m to the Highlands bound,
I’m seeking higher ground;
I can’t remain in all the plain,
I’m to the Highlands bound.

2 The angel voice has come to me,
And cautioned me to go,
And now obedient to His word,
I leave this land of woe. [Refrain]

3 They called me crazy as I left,
They laughed at my alarm;
But I have heard the Saviour’s voice,
I’m running from the storm. [Refrain]

4 Some started with me and looked back,
But forward yet I press;
I’m bound to reach the mountain top,
In holiness and peace. [Refrain]
