I built my house here
Long side this mountain
This rugged mountain
That stands so tall
I've had a good life
Above the lowlands
It's more than I'd asked for
But less than I'd dreamed

I've often heard a voice call down to me
If you'd climb higher
You'd find wondrous things to see
But the way is steep
And a storm may come

For such a time as this
Isn't it much too great a risk
I've never flown from the edge of a cliff
Never walked on the water
But if I turn away
How will I know what I have missed
Have I waited all of my life
For such a time as this

I've been content to
Not ask those questions
That stir the rivers
That move the waves, yeah
The windless waters
Are so much more peaceful
They calm my spirit
In silent song

I've often wondered what's eluding me
The yearning meant to free me
From complacency
But the way is steep
And a storm may come

For such a time as this
Isn't it much too great a risk
I've never flown from the edge of a cliff
Never walked on the water
But if I turn away
How will I know what I have missed
Have I waited all of my life
For such a time as this

Sometimes the thrill of soaring
Has to begin with the fear of falling

For such a time as this
Isn't it much too great a risk
I've never flown from the edge of a cliff
Never walked on the water
But if I turn away
How will I know what I have missed
Have I waited all of my life
For such a time as this
