An original hymn with text by Mark Fotheringham below.
YouTube video:

Rising from darkness, up toward the light,
Why am I ever engaged in this fight?
Why don't I stay where the sun always shines,
Instead of retreating to shadowy climes?

Climbing the mountain, too often I stall.
Flirting with danger, I slip and I fall.
Can't seem to endure celestial heights,
Preferring the valleys and much dimmer lights.

Am I just a fake, am I just a fraud,
Calling on God, then releasing the rod?
Stumbling forward, forgetting to pray,
When left to myself, I will soon lose my way.

Fog on the fringes, obscuring my sight,
Gathers around me to swallow the light.
Turning again and again seeking grace,
I find it here, smiling, from one perfect face.

Leading me back to a more perfect road,
Hope reignites as you lighten my load.  
You hover above me, gently, sublime.
I reach out to touch you, and then start to climb.
