Lyrics

Got a home in the mountains—
Oh, it’s so grand to see,
And I claim all the mountains
As far as I can see.

I go down to the valley where the world’s made from gold,
And I carry my mountain in the core of my soul.

Got a home in the mountains—
Oh, it’s so grand to see,
And I claim all the mountains
Surrounding me.

Folks who live in the valley say the mountains look down,
But I know that my mountain never looks toward the ground.
Mountains are made to reach for the sky;
Oh, they might never make it, but they’re sure gonna try.

Got a home in the mountains—
Oh, it’s so grand to see,
And I claim all the mountains
Surrounding me.

Some people are valleys and some are like hills,
But the people I care for know the mountains very well.

Got a home in the mountains—
Oh, it’s so grand to see,
And I claim all the mountains
As far as I can see.

Welcome!

Quote of the Week

The gateway to compassion and lovingkindness is to be able to feel our own pain, and the pain of others. If we are able to open in this way, our hearts can melt, and the healing salve of compassion can anoint all our wounds.

 

—Lama Palden, “The Gateway to Compassion
