Now, Lord, don't move my mountain
But give me the strength to climb
And, Lord, don't take away my stumbling blocks
But lead me all around

Oh Lord, you don't have to move the mountain
But give me the strength to climb
And, Lord, don't take away my stumbling blocks
But lead me all around

Lord, I don't bother nobody
I try to treat everybody the same
But every time I turn my back
They scandalize my name

But, oh Jesus, you don't have to move my mountain
But give me the strength to climb
And, Lord, don't take away my stumbling blocks
But lead me all around

Now when my folks would slay me
These things they will try to do
But, Lord, don't touch 'em
But within their heart
Make 'em give their life to you

Oh master, you don't have to move my mountain
But give me the strength to climb
And, Lord, don't take away my stumbling blocks
But lead me
