Going Down The Mountain
I'm going down the other side
Of the mountain we call "time"
It's been a lovely journey,
But I'm weary from the climb.
The sunrise and the sunset fade,
As my sight is growing dim;
But there's glory all around me,
For I'm going down with Him.
Sometimes Jesus says, "Don't hurry,
Let's just stop a little while;
Another traveling down this way
Is in need of just a smile.
Time is passing -night is coming,
But there'll be another day;
Other travelers will find courage
By the kind words that you say."
How much longer must I travel
For my friends are getting few?
But He tells me they'll find comfort
In the thoughtful things I do.
Now it hasn't been so different
Than 'twas on the other side;
For the same Lord has been with me,
And has been my constant guide.
Yes, sone day I'll reach the bottom,
And this life will all be o'er;
But the life begun in Heaven,
Will be better than before.
If the way is dark and you can't see ahead,
Remember that Jesus, our Saviour, has said;
"Lo, I am with you and always will be,
Through Life here on earth and all eternity."
