“Climb Ev’ry Mountain” was the closing song of the first act of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s 1959 hit musical, The Sound Of Music. The lyrics encourage listeners to take any and all necessary steps to realize their dreams. In the story, the main character, Maria, who clearly “would never be a nun”, gradually awoke to the possibility of a less sequestered life as she was encouraged to do by the Reverend Mother of the abbey. “When God closes a door, somewhere he opens a window.”
The choir will perform this inspiring song on Sunday, April 15, in keeping with the theme of “Gradual Awakening”.
Climb ev’ry mountain,
Ford ev’ry stream,
Follow ev’ry rainbow,
Till you find your dream!
