William A. Ogden (1841–1897)


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


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.


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.
