~ Take Me~

 

Lord, remove this mountain
If You choose it's best,
But leave it where it is
If by it's might I'm blessed.
 
For if it takes me near to You
As I struggle up it's height,
Then the climbing will be glorious
If it leads me to Your light.
 
Don't give me an easy path
Lined with colorless hue,
For I can suffer the dark valley
If it draws me close to You.
 
Take me the long way round
To show me richest treasures,
The shortest way will only give
Such hollow fleeting pleasure.
 
I don't care to be alone
Left on a voiceless shelf,
To empathize with another's pain
Is a gift of priceless wealth.
 
So take me up the mountain Lord
I can go anywhere with You,
 You give me all I need to climb
To see life from Your view.
 
Then I can cry out from a mountain top
You are full of love,
Oh lift me to the heights of joy
Found in You above.
