When it appears too overwhelming
And when mountains escalate,
It may appear our prayers aren’t answered
But God’s timing is never late.
When our mountains become strenuous
To climb or to overcome,
All hope is never lost
When we embrace God’s pure love.
The molehills in our life;
Large mountains they can become,
When our focus is on the problem
Rather than in healing through God’s Son.
Because when our ship appears to sink
And the waves come crashing down,
There’s a lifeguard who walks on water
And who can turn our life around.
When our waters are too deep
And when trepidation does take place,
There’s a Savior who extends His arm
With kindness and with grace.
No mountain is too high
And no valley is too deep,
When our faith and trust remains in Christ
And when victories we reap.
When we humble ourselves before the Lord
And with faith as a mustard seed,
We begin to respect His sovereignty
And prayerful outcomes we do see.
The mustard seed is the smallest
But it thrives and grows indeed,
And when prayers are wholehearted
Miracles happen on our knees.
Goliaths do come crumbling down
With their magnitude as well,
And it’s our pebbles that make an impact
With God’s power and His help.
T’was on the mountain at Calvary
Where our Savior was crucified,
But where redemption and victory powerfully met
When after three days Christ did rise.
