Hillsong UNITED // Highlands (Song Of Ascent) // New Song Cafe


O how high would I climb mountains
If the mountains were where You hide O how far I’d scale the valleys
If You graced the other side O how long have I chased rivers
From lowly seas to where they rise Against the rush of grace descending
From the source of its supply In the highlands and the heartache
You’re neither more or less inclined I would search and stop at nothing
You’re just not that hard to find I will praise You on the mountain
And I will praise You when the mountain’s in my way
You’re the summit where my feet are So I will praise You in the valleys all the
same No less God within the shadows
No less faithful when the night leads me astray You’re the heaven where my heart is
In the highlands and the heartache all the same O how far beneath Your glory Does Your kindness extend the path From where Your feet rest on the sunrise
To where You sweep the sinner’s past O how fast would You come running
If just to shadow me through the night Trace my steps through all my failure And walk me out the other side For who could dare ascend that mountain That valleyed hill called Calvary But for the One I call Good Shepherd Who like a lamb was slain for me So I will praise You on the mountain And I will praise You when the mountain’s in my
way You’re the summit where my feet are
So I will praise You in the valleys all the same No less God within the shadows
No less faithful when the night leads me a stray You’re the heaven where my heart is In the highlands and the heartache all the same Whatever I walk through, wherever I am Your Name can move mountains wherever I stand
And if ever I walk through the valley of death I’ll sing through the shadows my song of ascent Whatever I walk through, wherever I am Your Name can move mountains wherever I stand And if ever I walk through the valley of death I’ll sing through the shadows my song of ascent From the gravest of all valleys Come the pastures we call grace A mighty river flowing upwards from a deep but empty grave I will praise You on the mountain And I will praise You when the mountain’s in my
way You’re the summit where my feet are So I will praise You in the valleys all the same No less God within the shadows
No less faithful when the night leads me astray You’re the heaven where my heart is In the highlands and the heartache all the same

  1. This is a disgrace – he would do anything for God? He can't even get a haircut! The comments are ridiculous – this is pure unadulterated soulish entertainment from a rebel against the word and commands of a holy God – what is the matter with people?

  2. This song is pure poetry and beautiful imagery, I see and experience this song in pictures. A delightful song to praise God with.

  3. [Verse 1]
    O how high would I climb mountains
    If the mountains were where You hide
    O how far I'd scale the valleys
    If You graced the other side

    [Verse 2]
    O how long have I chased rivers
    From lowly seas to where they rise
    Against the rush of grace descending
    From the source of its supply

    [Pre-Chorus 1]
    ’Cause in the highlands and the heartache
    You're neither more or less inclined
    I would search and stop at nothing
    You're just not that hard to find

    [Chorus]
    I will praise You on the mountain
    And I will praise You when the mountain’s in my way
    You're the summit where my feet are
    So I will praise You in the valleys all the same
    No less God within the shadows
    No less faithful when the night leads me astray
    You're the heaven where my heart is
    In the highlands and the heartache all the same

    [Verse 3]
    O how far beneath Your glory
    Does Your kindness extend the path
    From where Your feet rest on the sunrise
    To where You sweep the sinner's past

    [Verse 4]
    O how fast would You come running
    If just to shadow me through the night
    Trace my steps through all my failure
    And walk me out the other side

    [Pre-Chorus 2]
    For who could dare ascend that mountain
    That valleyed hill called Calvary
    But for the One I call Good Shepherd
    Who like a lamb was slain for me

    [Chorus]
    I will praise You on the mountain
    And I will praise You when the mountain's in my way
    You're the summit where my feet are
    So I will praise You in the valleys all the same
    No less God within the shadows
    No less faithful when the night leads me astray
    You're the heaven where my heart is
    In the highlands and the heartache all the same

    [Bridge]
    Whatever I walk through
    Wherever I am
    Your name can move mountains
    Wherever I stand
    And if ever I walk through
    The valley of death
    I'll sing through the shadows
    My song of ascent
    Whatever I walk through
    Wherever I am
    Your name can move mountains
    Wherever I stand
    And if ever I walk through
    The valley of death
    I’ll sing through the shadows
    My song of ascent
    My song of ascent
    My song of ascent

    [Pre-Chorus 3]
    From the gravest of all valleys
    Come the pastures we call grace
    A mighty river flowing upwards
    From a deep but empty grave

    [Chorus]
    So I will praise You on the mountain
    And I will praise You when the mountain’s in my way
    You're the summit where my feet are
    So I will praise You in the valleys all the same
    No less God within the shadows
    No less faithful when the night leads me astray
    You’re the heaven where my heart is
    In the highlands and the heartache all the same

  4. Benjamin Hashtings' voice❤ smooth like butter. The layered harmonies from the 3 over the instruments sound so beautiful and angelic❤

  5. This album has been out for over a week and I'm still stuck on this song. (This is only the second one I've dove into. I'm excited for the rest!)

  6. That song has been my prayer! "I will praise You on the mountain and I will praise when the mountain's in my way" if God does He is God, if He doesn't He still who He is, so passionate about his most beautiful creation: US! Thank You Baba for loving us in a way that we can't even measure. We love You! "You're the heaven where my heart is"

  7. From the gravest of all valleys
    Come the pastures we call grace
    A mighty river flowing upwards
    From a deep but empty grave
    My favourite line of the album

  8. I just love his voice and the way he just sings and worships. You know he's speaking directly to God. I just love him man

  9. I met Ben in Irving, Tx and he is a great guy, who prayed with me for our church building project. Humble, genuine and concerned for our local church in Gonzales, TX.

  10. I can honestly say that this song is so amazing. Have probably listened to it 20 times today lol. God is speaking to me threw the depth of the meaning of the song. This is literally my testimony on how I tried to get to God threw righteousness instead of letting God just come to me in the lowlands of may lif.

  11. The song is beautiful but listening to your hearts and commitment to God,is even more beautiful ❤️

  12. Thank God for you hillsong .thank you for making beautiful songs .thank you for letting the holy spirit leads and guide you

    I really love Hillsong Music's lyrics & music. But I am a bit skeptical about the gospel they preach. They are great songwriters but there's just something weird about them…
    Nonetheless, I will still listen to them.

  14. LORD MAY WE HID IN YOUR PRESENCE, KEEP US SOCKED IN YOUR PRECIOUS HOLY SPIRIT. WE LOVE YOU, LORD, WE ARE NOTHING WITHOUT YOU IN OUR LIVES.

  15. Oh repeat. Awesome lyrics…
    I will praise you on the mountains,
    And I will praise when the mountain's in my way
    You're the summit where my feet are
    So I will praise You in the valleys all the same
    No less God within the shadows
    No less faithful when the night leads me astray
    You're the heaven where my night is
    In the highlands and the heartache all the same…

  16. 1 Corinthians 11:14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?
    Who would dare, having long hair.

  17. The lyrics to this song! ❤️❤️❤️❤️😭😭😭😭😭💥💥💥 Benji might just be my new favorite Hillsong songwriter!

  18. Speechless! Just listening and worshipping our Father with you all! This song is beyond OVERWHELMING IN HEALING AND WORSHIPPING AT THE SAME TIME. PRAISE GOD!❤❤❤ Thank You Hillsong UNITED!

  19. Immanuel, God with us, the pilgrim in reverse, a rushing river to the lowest point. Hallelujah! What a Savior!

  20. I was so blessed by the tour people 😭😭 I was listening to the song amazing grace taya was singing and I felt was God touched me powerfully and the holy spirit touched my heart and said I CARE ABOUT PEOPLE and I didn't even know about the people tour i didn't even know about the new album called people and God told me to go I was crying so hard at that concert the Lord touched me 🙌🙌🙌 let me stop because I would go on and on. Thanks God 😊😀😀😀

  21. i have been writing poems about the experience of knowing and being close to God like going out to embark on a journey to the mountains…at least for me, the current stuff happening in my life feels that way, and all the verses i have been holding on to i hear edified in this song. it's very lovely, the way God talks to me that way. hallelujah to our ascents. 🙂

  22. "O how high would I climb mountains, if the mountains were where you hide
    O how far I'd scale the valleys, If you graced the other side".

    more than the heart can express are these lines to me.

  23. I just want to get to download links playing online quit expensive for me. If possible for me to purchase the lyrics ,I mean as many hillsongs available,I will be very grateful to God ,in fact it will be a miracle for me.

  24. Please pray for Sudan. Children, women and men are killed and assaulted. I beg you to please only offer us your prayers.

  25. Ppl saying God bless them, I think God did bless them, God gave them the lyrics and chords

  26. Its 12:37 AM here and im listening this song to sleep. What a great and peaceful night with Jesus☺💖💖💖

  27. เอเมน ขอให้hillsongทำเพลงออกมาเพื่อพระเจ้าได้รับเกียติรครับ

  28. Thank you so much for sharing. You guys do such a great job. And it's so encouraging to see how god speaks to you and how you are on your way with him day by day – through highs and lows.
    Thank you so much for this Song!

  29. And if this was written by Benjamin Hastings, he got to be the best songwriter in the whole world. What a special team!!! ❤❤ All the songs he's lead speak so close to me. ❤

  30. For almost two weeks… I'v been listening to this song.. I never get tired of it. On the mountain… I will praise You.. And even when mountains on my way… I will still praise You. Thank you Hillsong United. 😊

  31. That’s when u know Jesus is in your heart. When he is still good and our provider of love and strength in the depths of darkness as well as in spiritual highs

  32. I sing praise and worship at church and have always loved hillsong. The past few songs have been a struggle as it was so poetic that memorizing them was a struggle. I found a YouTube vid that helped me learn and memorize Mind Palace (over 2500) years old. It’s been amazing and I can now worship. I do sometimes get a few words tongue tied, overall I’m joyous with where I am. I knew that songs were poetic, this adds a different flavor and I believe that because I write poems I can sing them to Jesus. All for the Glory of God.

    Are there scripture references to the songs? If so, will you post them. I like to meditate on the word. Much love and thank God for the four verse version.

    We will keep praising and worshiping God. He’s worthy.

  33. Wow – what a worship song?! Ben, what a treasure you are to us all?! And I mean us all … the world needs to dump Hollywood and understand that this is what we were created for! We were Created to Create and You are truly are storming or creating the gates for us. Joel! Fabulous – you guys a re a precious team to witness. I love how God works through you together.

  34. Oh my gosh ! This is destroying me – in the best possible way. What a gift you guys are. This is not some emotional experience for me – this is BREAKTHROUGH for me. This is the encouragement and medicine I needed! I have been in a excruciating, though hopefully refining situation. Please be in prayer for me if God puts me on your hearts!

  35. I always listen this song and I love it. Not only the sound but the big impact is the lyrics talk about what ever comes our way we still worship God.

    And if ever I walk through
    The valley of death
    I'll sing through the shadows
    My song of ascent

  36. Highlands my favourite song on the album PEOPLE, its always been soo refreshing listeneing to this new album every morning and day, i really love using metaphores in music. more grace to the crew ,Taya, Ben Histings, Joel Combo.

  37. So easy to praise him when things go your way… but when it's dark and your heart is breaking, and life stinks, he is still holy, still faithful, still good.
