Verse:
A         Gsus2                 D
  Can I ascend the hill of the Lord?
                     A
Can I stand in that holy place?
           Gsus2                  D
There to approach the glory of my God;
                 A
Come towards to seek Your face.
Em7          G                   A
  Purify my heart and purify my hands,
Em7             G                   A
  For I know it is on holy ground I'll stand.
Chorus:
D/F♯  G                   D/F♯       A
        I'm coming up the mountain, Lord;
D/F♯  G                     D/F♯   A
        I'm seeking You and You  alone.
D/F♯  G                    D/F♯      A
        I know that I will be transformed,
   Em7                D/F♯
My heart unveiled before You.
D/F♯  G                      D/F♯       A
        I'm longing for Your presence, Lord;
D/F♯  G                D/F♯     A
        Envelop me within the cloud.
D/F♯  G                   D/F♯        A
        I'm coming up the mountain, Lord,
   Em7                D/F♯
My heart unveiled before You,
        A   Gsus2   D/F♯   A
I will come.
Bridge:
A
I'm coming to worship,
Gsus2
I'm coming to bow down,
D/F♯                    A
I'm coming to meet with You. [Repeat as required 

CAN I ASCEND the hill of the Lord?
Can I stand in that holy place?
There to approach the glory of my God;
Come towards to seek Your face.
Purify my heart,
And purify my hands,
For I know it is on holy ground I'll stand.

I'm coming up the mountain, Lord;
I'm seeking You and You alone.
I know that I will be transformed,
My heart unveiled before You.
I'm longing for Your presence, Lord;
Envelop me within the cloud.
I'm coming up the mountain, Lord,
My heart unveiled before You,
I will come.

I'm coming to worship,
I'm coming to bow down,
I'm coming to meet with You.
(Repeat)
