Highlands (Song Of Ascent)

Highlands (Song Of Ascent)

O how high would I climb mountains
O how far I’d scale the valleys
O how long have I chased rivers
Against the rush of grace descending

Cause in the highlands and the heartache
I would search and stop at nothing

Oh I will praise You on the mountain
And I will praise you when the mountain’s in my way
You’re the summit where my feet are
So I will praise You in the valleys all the same
No less God within the shadows
No less faithful when the night leads me astray
Cause You’re the Heaven where my heart is
In the highlands and the heartache all the same

O how far beneath Your glory
Does Your kindness extend the path
And though how fast would you come running
Trace my steps through all my failures
And walk me out the other side

For who could dare ascend that mountain
But for the One I call Good Shepherd
Who like a lamb was slain for me

Whatever I walk through
Your Name can move mountains
And if ever I walk through
The valley of death
I’ll sing through the shadows
My song of ascent

From the gravest of all valleys
Come the pastures we call grace
A mighty river flowing upwards
From a deep but empty grave
