Dare To Climb The Mountain

Many people view the mountain,

  • But few ever want to climb.
  • For when you scale the mountain
  • you must leave the crowd behind.

There's a mountain that God offers

  • Those who climb it must be true,
  • Its peak's called full-time service
  • and it beckons me and you.

Will you dare to climb the mountain

  • though at times you'll feel alone?
  • Will you be a missionary,
  • leave the comfort of your home?

Now the way--it won't be easy--

  • many folks won't understand.
  • But there'll be applause in heaven
  • and the Lord will hold your hand.

You won't hear loud cheers and trumpets

  • When you tell folks of your plans.
  • They'll say "Why climb the mountain?"
  • "Why not play in the sand?"

But the voice still rings from heaven,

  • "Give me men to match my mountains High"
  • Men who won't give up--
  • who'll reach the top or die.

As you journey up the mountain,

  • you'll feel the cold winds blow,
  • And at times youll get discouraged
  • and your steps began to slow.

If you will just keep on the trail,

  • and refuse to turn around,
  • you can stand atop the mountain,
  • No better place is found.

When you stand there at the summit

  • with the world all far below,
  • You'll see the sights reserved for climbers
  • and your heart will seem to glow.

The guide that led you to the top

  • will be there at setting sun
  • and whisper at the end of the climb,
  • "Let's go home and rest, well done."
