Once I stood at the foot of a great high mountain
That I wanted so much to climb
And on top of this mountain was a beautiful fountain
That flows with the water of life

I fell down on my knees at the foot of this mountain
I cried, "O Lord what must I do?"
I want to climb this mountain, I want to drink from this mountain
That flows so clean in my view

Then I heard a sweet voice from the top of this mountain
Saying, "Child put your hand in mine
I started climbing slowly watch your steps at the edges
And take one step at a time

I started climbing upward taking one step at a time
The higher I got the harder I climbed
I'm still climbing upward and my journey's almost ended
I'm nearing the top and you ought to see the view
Oh the water flows so freely, there's enough to make you free
So friend if you're thirsty climb this mountain with me
