Give Me Strength to Climb This Mountain

Inspired by my trip to the Santa Catalina Mountains of Arizona

Give me strength to climb this mountain
Rising high in front of me
Give me joy in tribulation
As I travel toward Thee

Help me hope in all conditions
In the sun and in the rain
Help me trust for all provisions
Trust in You is never vain

Give me strength to cross this desert
Vast, as far as I can see
Give me might for every effort
As I seek to march to Thee

Help me walk where You have chosen
Show me where my feet should tread
Help me move when I am frozen
With Your might, I run ahead

Give me faith as I am climbing
Always looking toward the top
Give me grace when I am sliding
You will cause my doubts to stop

Help me see when night is falling
When the darkness hides the way
Help me rise when dawn is calling
Help me face another day

Give me love when I am weary
In Your love, my heart runs free
Give me light when days are dreary
Help it shine for all to see

Help me fight with all conviction
In the battle I must wage
Help me know with true prediction
Words of wisdom, like a sage

Give me drink when I am fainting
My oasis You shall be
Give me peace when I am waiting
Till the journey’s end I see

Help me face the greatest trials
Every canyon, every fray
Help me stop the serpent’s guiles
All the darts that come my way

Give me truth that slays all lying
You are rock beneath my feet
Give me life when I am dying
Guide me till at last we meet

“I lift my eyes unto the mountains. From where does my help come from? My help comes from Yehovah, Maker of heaven and earth.”
-Psalm 121:1

I am a nineteen-year-old girl who loves to write, especially fiction. I write many stories and poems. I usually have a moral or lesson behind my writings, for I hope these stories and poems, which Yehovah (God) helped me to write, will glorify Him as I share them on this blog. Welcome to my blog and I hope you enjoy your stay!
