I climbed a mountain the other day
To hear what God had to say
All was still, no sound I made
Upon this mountain, my burdens I laid
I finally cried out "Lord where are you?"
No reply came, I felt all was through
I lost some Faith, I felt a bit weary
My shoulders dropped, as I felt leery
At the top of this mountain, I looked around
I could see for miles, the far away ground
Looking above me, the silence was loud
I no longer felt strong, boastful, or proud
God wasn't there, or so I thought
My mind wandered off, evil images I fought
I once was so wise, I knew everything
Knowledge given to me by the only King
Did I lose my way? Where did I go wrong?
I testified every Sunday, and sang my song!
With frustration, my head hanging down in defeat
I went back to my house, staring down at my feet
Tears in my eyes, I prayed for myself
"Lord I need you for spiritual health!"
I had wasted my time to get to the top
Once I no longer heard God, it was time to stop
Then out of nowhere, Jesus pressed on my heart
"Daughter I've been here right from the start"
He continued to minister, as I bowed my head
He gave me back peace as I laid in my bed
I climbed that mountain, searching in vain
When all along I just needed to wait and maintain!
