Verse 1

O how high would I climb mountains

If the mountains were where You hide

O how far I’d scale the valleys

If You graced the other side

Verse 2

O how long have I chased rivers

From lowly seas to where they rise

Against the rush of grace descending

From the source of its supply

Pre-Chorus 1

In the highlands and the heartache

You’re neither more or less inclined

I would search and stop at nothing

You’re just not that hard to find


I will praise You on the mountain

And I will praise You when the mountain’s in my way

You’re the summit where my feet are

So I will praise You in the valleys all the same

No less God within the shadows

No less faithful when the night leads me astray

You’re the heaven where my heart is

In the highlands and the heartache all the same

Verse 3

O how far beneath Your glory

Does Your kindness extend the path

From where Your feet rest on the sunrise

To where You sweep the sinner’s past

Verse 4

O how fast would You come running

If just to shadow me through the night

Trace my steps through all my failure

And walk me out the other side

Pre-Chorus 2

For who could dare ascend that mountain

That valleyed hill called Calvary

But for the One I call Good Shepherd

Who like a lamb was slain for me


Whatever I walk through, wherever I am

Your Name can move mountains wherever I stand

And if ever I walk through the valley of death

I’ll sing through the shadows my song of ascent


My song of ascent, whoa,

whoa My song of ascent,

whoa, whoa

Pre-Chorus 3

From the gravest of all valleys

Come the pastures we call grace

A mighty river flowing upwards

From a deep but empty grave
