  • The mountains are steep and the valley's low
    And already I'm weary but I have so far to go
    Oh, and sorrow holds my hand and suffering sings me songs
    But when I close my eyes I know to whom I belong
    And who makes me strong

    And I will be free, I will be free to run the mountains
    I will be free, free to drink from the living fountain
    Oh, I'll never turn back 'cause he awaits for me
    Oh, I will be free

    A wise man, a rich man in pauper's clothes
    A shepherd to lead us through the land of woes
    Though many battles I have lost so many rivers yet to cross
    But my eyes behold the Son who bore my loss and who paid the cost

    I will be free, I will be free to run the mountains
    I will be free, oh, free to drink from the living fountain
    Oh, I'll never turn back 'cause He awaits for me, oh
    Oh, I will be free, oh

    Oh and I'll dance on silver moonlight and I'll walk through velvet fields
    Oh, and I'll run into the arms the arms that set me free

    Oh, I will be free to run the mountains, I will be free
    Free to drink from the living fountain
    Oh, I'll never turn back 'cause He awaits, oh
    I'll never turn back

    Don't you ever turn back
    'Cause someday, someday we're gonna see
    That we will be free Writer/s: CINDY LAVONNE MORGAN, CINDY MORGAN
