Seeking a mountain song

Friends have asked me to take the funeral service for their mother tomorrow.

She was a high country woman, born and brought up on a station where she in turn brought up her own family.

She loved the mountains and hills and the family want to sing a hymn or song which reflects that.

I ToThe Hills Will Lift Mine Eyes came to mind but they’d like another suggestion.

There must be another hymn or song that expresses love for the mountains, hills and/or high country but I can’t think of it and no-one else I’ve asked can either.

If you can think of one which might be appropriate I’d be grateful for any suggestions.

    Have you heard “Go rest High on the mountain” by Vince Gill?
