If You're Not Gonna Move This Mountain

Hello Friends,

This will be a short one, mostly just a song and a wish for a meaningful Good Friday. I encourage you not to rush through the pain of this weekend. Don’t rush past the torture of the cross and the agony that Jesus bore. Don’t be in too much of a hurry to take your eyes off of Mary, the mother of Jesus, at the foot of the cross, and what it means to lose a child. Don’t be in too much of a rush to wrestle with the guilt of betraying your best friend. Easter is coming, but we aren’t there yet. The struggle of Good Friday and Holy Saturday are a significant part of the story, so find the courage to sit in the tension this weekend.

Blessings,

Rick Lee James

“I know a better man than me
Walked the hill to Calvary.
Sometimes it takes a cross to set us free.”

(If You're Not Gonna) Move This Mountain

from the album A Little Lower Than The Angels by Rick Lee James

Verse 1
How in the world did I get here
How in the world do I leave
The promised land is straight ahead
But just beyond my grasp
I'm trapped between the mountain and the sea
I'm trapped between the mountain and the sea

Chorus 1
If You're not gonna move this mountain
If You're not gonna part the raging tides
If You're not gonna move this mountain
Will You help me across to the other side

Verse 2
Why in the world do I deserve this
Why is it too dark for me to see
You said you'd never give us anymore
Than we can bear
But it feels like You have given more to me
But it feels like You have given more to me


(BRIDGE)
Lord I know You never promised roses
And I know the rain will fall in this life
And I know a better man than me
Walked the hill to Calvary
Sometimes it takes a cross to set us free


Chorus 2
If You're not gonna move this mountain
If You're not gonna part the raging tides
If You're not gonna move this mountain
Will You help me across to the other side
(Will You help me bear my cross to the other side)
