Today’s Path: Friends

At times of hardship, I sing a song that is quite close to me. It reminds me of where I can go when I need help and no one is around.

The Chorus goes:
And the greatest friend you'll ever find is on the lonely mountain
And the highest high you'll ever feel is when you kneel to pray

This makes me want to climb that mountain to find that friend. In life we climb many mountains. We go up the rocks, through the trees and across the rivers just to get to the top to find that friend that will help back down and then up the rest of the mountains.

Each person continues with you through your paths and mountains. Sometimes you have to help them climb their mountains, and the true friends you find will stick with you through it all.

“It is far better to have a few great friends that watch your back, than an army of acquaintances.” Diane L. Broos

Hello! I am a choir director in southern Arizona, and I recently heard a recording of Mountain Song. I loved the message and tune. I was wondering if you had either the publisher or composer or arranger.
Thank you so much for any help!
