Em/ / D/ / C/ / G/ /

Verse 1

O how Emhigh would I climb mDountains if the mounCtains were where You hiGde
O how Emfar I'd scale the vaDlleys if You gCraced the other siGde
O how Emlow have I chased rDivers from lowly sceas to where they rGise
Against the Emrush of grace desDcending from the sCource of it's supGply

Prechorus 1

Cause in the hCighlands Dand the heEmartache You're neither Gmore or less inclDined
I will Csearch and sDtop at Emnothing You're just Cnot that hard to find


GI will praise You on the mountain D and I will praise You when the mountain's in my Emway
You're the Dsummit where my feet are Cso I will praise You in the valleys all the Gsame
No less God within the shadows DNo less faithful when the night leads me aEmstray
Cause You're the Dheaven where my heart is CIn the highlands and the heartache all the s(Em)ame

O how Emfar beneath Your gDlory does Your kCindness extend the pGath
From where Your Emfeet rest on the sCunrise to where You sCweep the sinner's paGst
And o how Emfast would You come ruDnning if just to shCadow me through the niGght
Trace my Emsteps through all my faDilure and walk me oCut the other sGide
