I Want That Mountain
Words and Music by Bill Harvey

Numbers 32:9
"For when they went up unto the valley of Eshcol, and saw the land,
they discouraged the heart of the children of Israel, that they
should not go into the land which the LORD had given them."

          I saw the giant of Prayerlessness upon the mountain high;
          He laughed so hard at my unbended knee.
          No longer in the wilderness I'll stay, and so I cry;
          I want that mountain, It belongs to me!

            Chorus
            I want that mountain!  I want that mountain!
            Where the milk and honey flow,
            Where the grapes of Eshcol grow,
            I want that mountain!  I want that mountain!
            The mountain that my Lord has given me.

          There was a giant of Laziness who said I wouldn't go,
          And witness for the One who set me free.
          I'll come from out the wilderness, I'll witness now I know;
          I want that mountain, It belongs to me!

            Chorus
            I want that mountain!  I want that mountain!
            Where the milk and honey flow,
            Where the grapes of Eshcol grow,
            I want that mountain!  I want that mountain!
            The mountain that my Lord has given me.

          One faithless giant upon the crest of Hebron's lofty height,
          Has vowed that he's the one to make me flee.
          I'll climb from out the wilderness! and trust Jehovah's might!
          I want that mountain, It belongs to me!

            Chorus
            I want that mountain!  I want that mountain!
            Where the milk and honey flow,
            Where the grapes of Eshcol grow,
            I want that mountain!  I want that mountain!
            The mountain that my Lord has given me.

          Let ev'ry giant of distress and unbelief and sin,
          Get ready now to vacate, for you see;
          I've come from out the wilderness!  I know I'm going to win!
          I want that mountain, It belongs to me!

            Chorus
            I want that mountain!  I want that mountain!
            Where the milk and honey flow,
            Where the grapes of Eshcol grow,
            I want that mountain!  I want that mountain!
            The mountain that my Lord has given me.
