For Such A Time As This
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 asked for, but less than I 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 to great a risk

I've never flown from the edge of a cliff

Never walked on the water

But if I turned away

How would 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 waters and move the waves

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's meant to free me from complacency

But the way is steep

And a storm my come...



For such a time as this

Isn't it much to great a risk

I've never flown from the edge of a cliff

Never walked on the water

But if I turned away

How would I know what I have missed

Have I waited all of my life

For such a time as this
