"Mountains High" as written by and Richard Gosting Dick St. John....
Sorrow came to visit us today
Was the longest day, was the loneliest day
Sorrow came to steal our hope away
Only tears can tell
Of this holy hour

This mountain's high, too high for us
This mountain's high, too high for us

Sorrow came quicker than a fire
Was the longest day, was the loneliest day
I feel your hand, the warmth, your sweetest smile
But you slipped away, through the great divide

This mountain's high, too high for us
This mountain's high, too high for us

Your ways are high, too high for us
Your ways are high, too high for us

    General CommentI love this song. It's beautiful and so sad. I think it's about the fact that God's ways and means are too high for us to understand, and when God takes things from us or doesn't answer prayer is because He knows what's best for us, and the reason would be too "high" for us to understand. So yeah. God takes things and we don't know why because

    General Commenti went to see delirious live when they first played this song.
    they said that there friend had died recently and they belived God had taken him away too early, basically the song had been written about him
    so the song is about how God does things we dont understand, and probably never will, but we should just trust God.
