lyrics

It takes a long, long, long time
A never-ending daily grind
You might not see it every day
But that’s the way mountains are made

I felt the pressure, I felt the heat
I felt the earth move beneath my feet
But I heard a voice say “Don’t be afraid.
That’s the way mountains are made.”

Sometimes it seems, seems so slow
But what’s buried down below
Starts to rise, elevate
That’s the way mountains are made

They come up jagged, those rocky peaks
Look a little ragged, but each one’s unique
Then the seasons soften them with age
That’s the way mountains are made

Too much on your plate,
Your world comes to a halt
And the good Lord exposes your faults
But He listens to the prayers you prayed
That’s the way mountains are made
