Mountain Move

Uploaded .

Written and performed by Tangmo and Jay Jackson. If my voice sounds a little sickly, it’s because it was. I went into the hospital with life-threatening heart and respiratory problems days after laying vocals for this song. It remains a ‘spiritual’ favorite of mine for that (and other) reasons.

I walk up to the mountain
I say unto the mountain, “Mountain move.”
But the mountain don’t move.
It just stands there
Stands there like it’s got something big to prove.

I walk into the Valley.
I say unto the Valley, “Valley, rise!”
but the Valley don’t rise.

I climb up on the mountain.
I pray upon the mountain, “Mountain, why?”
as the sweat burns my eyes.

The Mountain finally answers.
Lord, the mountain’s wise.

Faith and toil sit side by side like shore and sea.
Maybe the mountain don’t move at all
but it sure moves me.
