  • It's a steep climb
    To get on up there
    Not as hard as it may seem
    At times - just one step
    At a time
    We climb
    Together, hand in hand
    We know we will stand
    Up there, at the end
    Hold onto the rail
    As we go...don't let go
    Soon you will know,
    It wasn't as hard as it looked
    When we first started
    Just take my hand
    Up, up, up we go...
