Take Heart

My path is over unknown mountain trails,
climbing treacherous shifting terrain.
Lord I follow You up mountains high, 
grant me mighty strength to walk this way. 

Christ lead on, let each breath stir my heart,
let the mystery of the Father’s will 
unfold on earth - renewing all creation.
Be my eyes, transfixed on Heaven’s way.

Your Holy Spirit within,
your Heavenly Host to surround,
the evil one bound, darkness lifts, 
the light of Christ dawns upon this ground.
