Give Me This Mountain lyrics and chords. This compilation contains both the Graham Kendrick and New Creation songs.
“Give me this mountain” is Caleb’s request to Joshua in Joshua Chapter 14 and is well-known as a bold faith request.
12Now therefore give me this hill country, of which Yahweh spoke in that day; for you heard in that day how the Anakim were there, and great and fortified cities. It may be that Yahweh will be with me, and I shall drive them out, as Yahweh said.”Joshua 14:12 WEB
Caleb reminded Joshua of what happened 45 years ago when they spied out the land. His full speech here:
7 I was forty years old when Moses the servant of Yahweh sent me from Kadesh Barnea to spy out the land. I brought him word again as it was in my heart. 8 Nevertheless, my brothers who went up with me made the heart of the people melt; but I wholly followed Yahweh my God. 9 Moses swore on that day, saying, ‘Surely the land where you walked shall be an inheritance to you and to your children forever, because you have wholly followed Yahweh my God.’
10 “Now, behold, Yahweh has kept me alive, as he spoke, these forty-five years, from the time that Yahweh spoke this word to Moses, while Israel walked in the wilderness. Now, behold, I am eighty-five years old, today. 11 As yet I am as strong today as I was in the day that Moses sent me. As my strength was then, even so is my strength now for war, to go out and to come in. 12 Now therefore give me this hill country, of which Yahweh spoke in that day; for you heard in that day how the Anakim were there, and great and fortified cities. It may be that Yahweh will be with me, and I shall drive them out, as Yahweh said.”
13 Joshua blessed him; and he gave Hebron to Caleb the son of Jephunneh for an inheritance. 14 Therefore Hebron became the inheritance of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite to this day, because he followed Yahweh, the God of Israel wholeheartedly. 15 Now the name of Hebron before was Kiriath Arba, after the greatest man among the Anakim. Then the land had rest from war.Joshua 14:7-15 WEB
How can Caleb be so bold?
Caleb is already 85 years old and he still wants to go to war. He claimed he is as strong as when he is 40 years old. How can that be?
Listen to Pastor Joseph Prince explains why and how in the Give Me This Mountain full sermon.
Let me live long live strong until I possess my inheritance.

2. Give Me This Mountain (Caleb’s Song) by Graham Kendrick
[Verse 1] We have walked the wilderness And have proved Your faithfulness And known Your presence And some have stumbled on the way By grace alone, we're here today Here in Your presence [Pre-Chorus 1] The race is not yet run And battles to be won But in Your strength I'm strong Though giants bar the way Our God is strong to save You made me bold to say [Chorus] Give me this mountain I will not be turning back Give me this mountain For Your glory Give me this mountain Jesus' blood has overcome So I'm not quitting till it's done [Verse 2] In Your name, we rise and go On to victory if we know That You are with us With angel armies all around Till on the mountaintop, we stand All praising Jesus [Pre-Chorus 2] Though giants bar the way Our God is strong to save You made me bold to say [Chorus] Give me this mountain I will not be turning back Give me this mountain For Your glory Give me this mountain Jesus' blood has overcome So I'm not quitting till it's done I'm not quitting till it's done

Give Me This Mountain Book
Are you barely surviving or thriving?
I want to be thriving during this period. It requires faith. Real, raw, and authentic faith. Just like Caleb. Despite the grit, the difficulties and the mountains in my way. Whatever it may be.
How can I do that?
Faith in a good and mighty God. He is able to hold on to me when I fail. He will steady my heart, and sharpen my vision.
