I didn't find the song but evidently the Hee Haw Quartet, 2nd Edition, recorded it. Cassette only, $9.98

Maybe someone else will find the lyrics.

Grandpa Jones recorded it; it's on the album "The Grandpa Jones Story," 1976.

BMI says it was written by Joseph W. Wheeler Jr.

Closer To God Than Ever Before
Recorded by the Hee Haw Quartet
[3/4 time]

G                   G7       C
If you climb to the top of a mountain
       G                         D7
And you look towards the heavenly door
       G          G7       C
And you almost hear voices of angels
                      G       D7    G
Then you're closer to God than ever before

       C                G
If you look out over the ocean
                                  D7
While the waves gently roll on the shore
       G                           C
Can you tell He's up there watching o're you
                      G       D7    G
Then you're closer to God than ever before

                G7          C
If you stand all alone in the darkness
       G                         D7
Do you wonder what life holds in store
          G            G7       C
If there's peace and contentment around you
                      G       D7    G
Then you're closer to God than ever before

Repeat #2

....and reposted as just lyrics because I can't stand reading lyrics with chords between every pair of lines...

CLOSER TO GOD THAN EVER BEFORE
Songwriter:

If you climb to the top of a mountain
And you look toward the heavenly door
And you almost hear voices of angels
Then you're closer to God than ever before

If you look wide over the ocean
While the waves gently roll on the shore
Can you tell He's up there watching o'er you
Then you're closer to God than ever before

If you stand all alone in the darkness
Do you wonder what life holds in store
If there's peace and contentment around you
Then you're closer to God than ever before

If you look far out over the ocean
While the waves gently roll on the shore
Can you tell He's up there watching o'er you
Then you're closer to God than ever before

I'm not completely sure of that word after "if you look....the ocean." Maybe it's "if you look wide/far out over the ocean."
