to the mountains above me,
to Him who fulfills,
who constantly loves me.
When I fail and fall,
He's still ever with me.
This truth I'll recall-
He always forgives me.
He watches over
my life day and night,
As I'm growing older,
I sense His delight.
My Helper in trials,
since the day of my birth-
The Lord of the isles
and the Maker of earth.

Though I know time is fleeting,
yet this drum of mine is beating,
resounding day and night
so much faster than I've known.
Thus I should live each minute,
as a brave and faithful tenant,
and tend each seed I've planted
'til its fruit is fully grown.
Still I often fail and falter,
as I stumble toward the altar,
but my heart desires to know
and hear the voice Divine.
One day I'll know the reasons
for life's ever changing seasons,
and see the only lasting seeds
were never really mine.
It's not the seeds I've planted,
it's grace our God has granted-
I only need to do my part
and follow day and night.
Then when time has ended
and my spirit has ascended,
I'll taste the tree of Life
and the glory of His light.

glowing with divine desire,
serving the Lord for all to see,
but He had different plans for me.
Instead, I serve behind the scenes,
in a role of much lesser means,
often unnoticed, not well known,
and at times just a bit alone.
I know the last will be made first,
that prideful vanity is accursed.
Then why do I still desire acclaim,
in the disguise of His Holy Name?
Lord, please help me to be content
to remain in the role You sent,
to sit in the back, without despair,
knowing You have put me there.
And during the times I feel alone,
when my spirit's like a stone,
come to me and to heal my heart,
while I play the smaller part.
I'll look to the hills, to the mountains above me, to Him who fulfills, who constantly loves me. When I fail and fall, He...

As we're traveling our own way, we often find ourselves astray- stormy seas and waves of woe assailing us like an angry foe. ...
