Like A Deer Upon Mountainous High Ground

Like A Deer Upon Mountainous High Ground

1920 1285 Debbie Harris

Upon the craggy rock?
Upon a slippery precipice?
Under a shady tree?
Dwellest thou in a dark and dungenous valley?
Upon a turbulent sea?
Upon an unexpected yet blessed mountaintop of relief?
Upon a much needed yet blessed mountaintop of relief?
Upon a much needed level and lush pasture land?
Upon a lifeless and dry desert with blistering heat?
Upon the battleground with enemies all around?

No matter what landscape of life we find ourselves upon,
Underneath the thin veneer of the earthly layer,
Is the Rock of Ages, Jesus Christ
Who makes our trembling, timid feet of clay
Steady and surefooted
Like a deer upon mountainous high ground!

No matter what life brings
Upon the Rock of Christ we stand
Always lifting high
His most precious Holy name!


The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds feet upon my high places. Habakkuk 3:19 (KJV)

The Lord God is my strength, and my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds feet and will make me to walk (not to stand still in terror, but to walk and make spiritual progress upon my high places (of trouble, suffering, or responsibility Habakkuk 3:19 (Amplified)
