Songs From Genesis: Taking Isaac Up The Mountain

Books-songs

One of this site’s favorite past columns now returns, with a new twist. Each week, we will go through the books of the Bible, looking at a song that illustrates a passage from each book.

In Genesis 22, we see one of the most unusual stories in Scripture. God decides to test Abraham’s faith with this instruction: “Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of” (Genesis 22:2, KJV).

Isaac asked Abraham, “Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” (22:7).

Abraham replied, “My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering” (22:8).

Many songs have discussed the end to the story, where God did provide Himself a Lamb. But a few years ago, legendary songwriter Sandy Knight wrote a song focusing on what is, perhaps, the heart of the story: Abraham passing the test of faith by taking Isaac up the mountain.

Verse 1
Abraham went climbing
Taking Isaac up the mountain
On his way to sacrifice his son to the Lord
But Abraham said, “We’ll return
“For I know God will provide”
And just in time God gave a sacrifice

Chorus
Taking Isaac up the mountain
Such a long and lonely trip
Knowing everything in love
You’re on your way to give
Then suddenly you see the sign
That God has made a way
Taking Isaac up the mountain
Was just a test of faith
To see how far that I would go with God

Many of Sandy Knight’s great songs were originally recorded by her family’s group, The Roy Knight Singers, before being picked up by one of the genre’s top groups. This song needs to join them.
