Savior, lead me up the mountain

1
Savior, lead me up the mountain,
  Where the Lord alone is seen,
Where we hear the voice from heaven,
  Where the air is pure and clean.
  Lead me higher up the mountain,
  Give me fellowship with Thee;
In Thy light I see the fountain,
    And the blood it cleanses me.
2
Higher up where light increases,
  Far above all earthly strife,
Where the strain of effort ceases,
  Where in Christ we reign in Life.
3
Savior, keep me up the mountain
  Pressing on toward the goal,
Till, as one, we share Thine image,
  And Thy love and grace extol.

This original song was written in 1884 by William J. Pearson (1832-92). Pearson joined the Salvation Army in 1874, 4 years before the name "Salvation Army" was adopted. Using his ability as a writer, Pearson was able to help rally the troops in the midst of the battle. He became one of William Booth's closest associates and ran the Salvation Army publishing house. Here is the original song:

------------

1 Jesus, lead me up the mountain,

Where the whitest robes are seen,

Where the saints can see the fountain,

Where the pure are keeping clean.

------------------

2 Higher up, where light increases,

Rich above all earthly good,

Where the life of sinning ceases,

Where the Spirit comes in floods

-------------

3 Lead me higher, nothing dreading,

In the race to never stop,

In Thy footsteps keep me treading,

Give me grace to reach the top.

---------------

4 Save me better, make me surer,

Put me where the fire refines,

Where the breath of hope is purer,

Where the brightest glory shines.

----------

I don't know of any other hymn that the word "mountain" is referred to so much. In the book of Matthew the word "mountain" is referred to about fourteen times. Each reference to the word "mountain" brings us into a new glimpse of Christ. Whether it be the first mention when He was tempted, or the last one where in resurrection He commissioned the disciples to "go," there is always a new revelation of Christ! May our life be one on that mountain where we can hear the Beloved's voice alone!
