Mountain Peaks and Valleys Deep


In a valley deep and low

where the wild animals roam

echo earth’s never-ending groans and moans


High up on a mountain peak  

strong winds swirl and chill and speak

crying out for the world to sing in harmony


(do you hear the groans and moans

do you hear the mountains call

do you know what they know

there’s more to life than living)


The valley low knows your need

it feels your pains dark and deep

and mountain peaks hear your praise

when your spirit soars on its wings


Somehow through the highs and lows

there’s a place we all can know

a sense of peace and tranquility

when thanks-living becomes our home.

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord;

let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!

Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;

let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

For the Lord is a great God,

and a great King above all gods.

In his hand are the depths of the earth;

the heights of the mountains are his also.

The sea is his, for he made it,

and his hands formed the dry land.

Oh come, let us worship and bow down;

let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!

Psalm 95:1-6 (ESV)
