VIDEO – Children’s Chorus Performs “Up to the Mountain”

BOSTON, Mass. (WGGB) — One of the more moving moments from Thursday’s service came from some of the city’s young musical artists.

The Boston Children’s Chorus performed “Up to the Mountain,” accompanied by famed cellist Yo-Yo Ma.

Several of the choral members fought back tears, but continued to belt out the moving rendition of the Patty Griffin song.

LYRICS:
I went up to the mountain
Because you asked me to
Up over the clouds
To where the sky was blue
I could see all around me
Everywhere
I could see all around me
Everywhere

Some days I look down
Afraid I will fall
And though the sun shines
I see nothing at all
Then I hear your sweet voice, oh
Oh, come and then go, come and then go
Telling me softly
You love me so

The peaceful valley
Just over the mountain
The peaceful valley
Few come to know
I may never get there
Ever in this lifetime
But sooner or later
It’s there I will go
Sooner or later
It’s there I will go
