Intro

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

'Cause 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

Chorus

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

Bridge

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

Interlude 2

My song of ascent
Oo-oh, whoa-oh

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
