1.  O Christ, we climb the hill with thee,

thou Master of the upward way.

We scale the heights that we may see

thy vision of the coming day.

2.  Show us thy kingdom, thou our King,

point out the paths of peace and right;

Though feet are weary, hearts will sing,

we climb into thy glorious light.

3.  Give us the courage of thy cross

to dare to live and die for thee;

To walk through fire, to suffer loss

in faith that keeps us strong and free.

4.  New worlds of beauty greet our eyes

as far horizons now we see;

O master of the hills that rise,

to unknown heights we climb with thee.
