Step of Faith

Climb to the top of the mountain
every step He’ll be right there
reaching out His arms of love
reaching out His hand of care.

Do not be afraid to reach into thin air
His hand will be there, promising you He’ll never let go.
Do not be afraid to step on ground you cannot see
He promises for you solid Rock He shall be.

Beloved, think not He’s waiting for you to reach out first
His loving arm is already extended.
“Grace begins where human ability ends,”
And there on the Cross your ability has ended.

Your right choices He has chosen before time began
each wrong choice you would do, He has sorted.
So take up your Cross, strengthened by His grace and His love only,
You In Jesus dying daily.

And when you reach the final step,
He’ll lift you up to the top of the mountain
His hand still placed in yours so faithfully,
Each step you took having fought the good fight,
Been true to the faith God placed in your heart,
Not forgetting His yoke which made it so easy
And His burden which made yours so light.
And there at the top of the mountain you dance,
The dance of Life in the arms of your Lord Jesus
Sealed in the song of each moment
and music to which Satan cannot listen.

Footnote:
"But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord;
I say you are my God.”
My times are in Your hand..." - Psalm 31: 14-15

“For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me...” Galatians 2: 19-20
