​Lord Don't Move That Mountain

This song is by Inez Andrews and appears on the album Lord Don't Move That Mountain (1972).

Original video
My Lord, don't move my mountain
But give me the strength to climb
And Lord, don't take away my stumbling blocks
But lead me all around.

Oh Lord, you don't have to move the mountain
But give me the strength to climb
And Lord, don't take away my stumbling blocks
But lead me all around.

Lord I don't bother nobody
I try to treat everybody the same
But every time I turn my back
They scandalize my name

But oh Jesus, you don't have to move my mountain
But give me the strength to climb
And Lord, don't take away my stumbling blocks
But lead me all around.

Now when my folks would slay me
Beat me as they would try to do
But Lord don't touch 'em
'Cause within their hearts
They could give their lives to you

Oh Master, you don't have to move my mountain
But give me the strength to climb
And Lord, don't take away my stumbling blocks
But lead me all around.
