What Hill Are These
What hills are these that I must Climb
Lord, I ask for a flat land
where I could see the sunrise over the horizon
and be content to see the break of day.
... Oh foolish child, who can not see
... beyond their faltered footprint, look
... up and understand the reason why.
... Beyond you are the mountains where
... there is no morning sunrise. These
... foothills are where you will learn to climb.
What hills are these that I must trod?
Lord, mist obscures my vision.
Where can I go to see beyond their vista of tomorrow
and be content to see across the haze?
... Oh foolish man who can not see
... beyond what lies before you. Look up
... and understand with open eyes. You ask
... to see the sunrise comming over the
... horizon. Climb on I'll give you endless
... earth and skies.
Lord, bless the hills that brought me here
to climb the higest mountain, where I now feel
it's peace within my soul. I saw a
glimpse of daybreak on eternities horizon
and understood why hills were not my goal.
Yesterday is history,
tomorrow just a mystery.
And if today is good to me,
it will beat the heck out of day before yesterday!
