THE MOUNTAIN

I started my journey up the mountain
The purpose was to find the fountain
The testimony of so many, whom searched and found
I was told as I search, to listen for the sounds
Of waters overflowing, a river rushing and pouring
living water, a spring of life, formed by sacrifice
It wasn’t long as I started up the steep ravine
I ran into the person of sin, his darkness was clearly seen
Instantly I began to stumble and fall
Frightened and full of fear, I heard an echo off the wall
Of the mountainside, a voice cried out, walk this way
There I saw the person of grace
He spoke to me about being covered from my stains
He told me to keep climbing, It is soon to rain
He told me of the person I was next to face
He said to climb as to win the race
Not to far up I saw the person of Wisdom
As He told me to come
Then He showed me a book, A map, a guide, directions to the brook
In which I was seeking, It was like a holy meeting
Because He shined like the sun
He told me these words written, is how the battle is won
If I am to overcome the mountain, I must follow the words of the Son
He spoke of truth guiding my way, and warned of one who betrays
Then I saw him, the person of lies, he was in disguise
To trick and deceive, he highlighted all my sin, and looked at me with piercing eyes
He told me to go back, I can’t reach the top, no matter how hard I fought
There was no way I could win, and then again he had me focus on my sin
I remembered the person of grace, and how he said I was covered from my stains
It then began to rain as Wisdom said, I drank and I was ready to climb
To my surprise there it was to find, the peak was in sight
As I reached the top, I was tired from the fight
As I looked out from the mountains top, I could see many valleys and peaks
There in the far distance a river overflowing in my sight and in reach
The beauty was like nothing I have seen
It was then a breeze came, with a voice saying
The peaks and valleys will help you grow
The peaks and valleys will help you come to know
The purpose of the one who created you, so His love will show
On the journey up, The Mountain
