Let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths.@Isaiah 2:3

I’m climbing Zion’s mountain,
With Jesus as my guide,
I’ll reach the cleansing fountain—
The precious crimson tide.

Refrain

I’m onward, upward climbing
Mount Zion’s rugged side;
I’ll reach the land immortal
And there in joy abide.

Earth’s storms are all below me—
Her floods can reach me not;
Close to the Rock of Ages
I’ll find a sheltered spot.

Refrain

Ne’er was a friend so faithful,
And ne’er a guide so true;
I will to Him be loyal
The whole long journey through.
