McKameys, "God on the Mountain", Classic Southern Gospel Song Stands Test of Time

The McKameys, “God on the Mountain” is one of Southern Gospel Music’s most beloved songs. Winner of “Song of the Year” in 1988, “God on the Mountain” has been recorded by many artists including Lynda Randle for the Gaither Homecoming Series.

My favorite version of the song is the live version from 1989’s Gone to Meetin' LIVE CONCERT If you have ever seen the McKameys live you know that Peg does get excited. Indeed she has been known to get so excited that she takes her shoes off and shakes them. I had to ask her how that got started. Peg laughed and smiled, “I don’t know how that got started. Sometimes I feel like they are bothering me and I just slip them of and there’s been a lot of things told about that – people tease me and request me to take my shoes off and I tell them if I get caught up (in the Holy Spirit) and get excited its untelling what I might do.” Southern Gosepl Music's, The McKameys, winner of SOng of the Year for I laughed and told her that when the McKameys get inducted into the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame they need to bronze one of her shoes for a display.

“God on the Mountain” is a song that speaks to situations and circumstances that we all face. It is a song that encourages and gives hope. I pray that the lyrics will minister to you as they have to me.

Lyrics to "God on the Mountain"

as performed by the McKameys

Verse 1

Life is easy,

when your up on the mountain
And you’ve got peace of mind

Like you’ve never known
But then things change and your down in the valley
Don’t lose hope
for your never alone


For the God on the mountain
is still God in the valley
When things go wrong
He’ll make them right
And the God of the good times,
is still God of the bad times
And the God of the day
is still God of the night
Verse 2

You talk of faith when
your up on the mountain
Oh, but the talk comes so easy
When life’s at its best
But its down in the valley
of trials and temptations
That’s where faith is
really put to the test

Repeat Chorus 2 times

And the God of the day is
still God of the night
