Lyrics

Go on up to the mountain of mercy
To the crimson perpetual tide
Kneel down on the shore
Be thirsty no more
Go under and be purified

Follow Christ to the Holy mountain
Sinner, sorry and wrecked by the fall
Cleanse your heart and your soul
In the fountain that flows
For you and for me and for all

Chorus
At the wonderful tragic mysterious tree
On that beautiful scandalous night you and me
Were atoned by His blood and forever washed white
On that beautiful scandalous night

On the hillside you will be delivered
At the foot of the cross, justified
And your spirit restored
By the river that pours
From our blessed Saviour's side

- Chorus -

Bridge
You carry the sin of mankind on your back
And the sky went black
Go on up to the mountain of mercy
Go the crimson perpetual tide
Kneel down on the shore
Be thirsty no more
Go under and be purified

- Chorus (2x) -
On that beautiful scandalous night
Beautiful scandalous
Miraculous night

Dance history

I had heard this song performed at Christian churches a few years prior to choreographing this dance. After seeing the name of the song appear on a list of various worship songs, I looked up the song and re-listened to it. I instantly fell in love with its 3/4 measure and the expressive lyrics. I got up and started working at it and this dance was formed.
