How Beautiful Upon The Mountain         
(Tom Paxton)

Chorus:
---- D -- G ---------- D ------------ G -------------------- A7
How beautiful upon the mountain are the steps of those who walk in peace.
            
---- D -- G ---------- D ------------ G ---- A7-------------- D
How beautiful upon the mountain are the steps of those who walk in peace.



D -----------------------------   G ------------ D
Across the bridge at Selma you came marching side by side,
------------ G ------------ A7

In your eyes a new world on the way.
D ---------------------------   G ----------- D
Hope was in your heart and justice would not be denied.
---------------- G ----------- A7

You sang "We shall overcome some day."

---------------------------- G ------- D -------- G ----- A7

God knows the courage you possessed, and Isaiah said it best:



(Chorus)

   

Marching 'round the White House, marching 'round the Pentagon,
                                                      
Marching round the mighty missile plans,
      
Speaking truth to power, singing "Peace in Babylon,
                                                            
Asking us "Why not give peace a chance?"

   

God knows the courage you possessed, and Isaiah said it best:



(Chorus)

      

Now the generations who have joined you on this road
                                             
Look to you with power in their eyes.
      
Now you know the torch has passed as they pick up the load.

Now you see their eyes are on the prize.

   
God knows the courage they possess, and Isaiah said it best:



(Chorus)
