Hymn Monday - "Look Toward the Mountains"

Today's hymn, "Look Toward the Mountains" (#310) is from "Lutheran Worship", (c) 1982 by Concordia Publishing House.

" Look toward the mountains of the Lord,
Rampart against the devil's horde;
Ascend the heights where God's adored.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

But our best banners tattered lie --
Dare we approach God's Sinai?
There thund'rous, love's ten standards fly.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

Holy the lightnings round them flare.
But higher, look, what glory there;
What Gospel trumpets fill the air!
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

Oh, soaring mount of saving grace,
Where sin can never hide God's face,
Where all who come have his embrace!
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

Christ is the way to that blest height!
Our wayward steps he sets aright,
He takes us up into the light.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

Follow the cross where God the Lord,
His Son, who life and joy restored,
And their blest Spirit are adored.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!"
Jesu Juva,
Soli Deo Gloria
