You are standing on the mountain holding to the Shepherd’s hand
The valley you just came through, was hard to understand
Then the Shepherd draws you closer
There’s something He wants you to see
And He points back to the valley and unfolds its mysteries

As the eagles soar around you and you look back on where you’ve been
One by one He answers questions, that He did not answer then
He now shows you the danger, of going your own way
All those roads you thought were better
Would have led your soul astray

He reminds you of that moment, when you could not make it through
Now you see one set of footprints where He reached down and carried you
As your tears fall on His shoulder, and you thank Him for His love
He says “Child, I knew that one day, you’d see this valley from above”

Things look different on the mountain from the Shepherd’s point of view
Standing high above the trial, that He brought you safely through
All the valley’s disappointments, will never look the same to you
For things look different on the mountain
From the Shepherd’s point of view
