Track Name: The Mountain
I know where I’m going
This mountain won’t move
I have to keep walking
This mountain won’t move
Keep, just keep walking
This mountain won’t move

Don’t count. These steps keep getting harder
Won’t look back, there is beauty in this
This mountain isn’t dormant it is strong
Won’t look back, there is beauty in this

Hoping for what I can’t see
There is more than this road
I’m going to leave this shadow
I’m going to see the other side
Hoping for what I can’t see
There is more than this road
I’m going to leave this shadow
I’m going to see the other side

I’m coming to the top and I can hear His voice
Calling me home
I’m coming to the top and I can hear His voice
Calling me home
Track Name: The Summit
Come home
Track Name: The Descent
Coming down (Blurring line of sight)
To fast to take it in (stop this movement)
Can hardly see (life here and now)
I ran right past it

I watched, my path, I lost, this movement never ends
I’ll take a breath, this time, won’t let this pass me by
I watched, my path, I lost, this movement never ends
I’ll take a breath, this time, won’t let this pass me by
Track Name: The Giant
Ground Shakes, Hands trembling
Empty ruins in its wake
My heart falls to the ground
It’s coming right for me

My God, why should I go on?
When all I see is this mass in front of me.

Can’t hide away from it
It’s following me
And it will follow me wherever I go

It comes, it comes, – I just want to run, where can I run
It’s face reflects my fears, my weaknesses show
Oh God just let this please go away

God I know I should go on
But all I see is this mass
My God help me to go on
To get past this Giant

I know I need to let go and face it
It does not matter how this ends
This fight is where I am meant to be

I feel a freedom in this
There’s no room for shaking
And there I see the distant shore
Track Name: The Sea
Casting out into the sea
I’m finding my way home
Following, from the distance
I’m finding my way home

Come Home, Come Home

Insistent voice calling me
I know I will get home
A compass of mystery
I know I will get home

Come Home, Come Home

I’ll go on
Track Name: The Purpose
I have come all this way,
To get through, and to reach out.
Cause I know, its You I need
And I know You are near
I'll find my way to get there, cause I know, I know

You are the passage of this journey
Cause I’ll call on Your name

You are my Reason
You are my Purpose
