Climb the mountain top and tell it
Reference to the mountaintop where God told Moses his journey to take his people to the Promised Land would end.
“Then Moses climbed Mount Nebo… There the Lord showed him the whole land… Then the Lord said to him, "This is the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob… I will let you see it with your eyes, but you will not cross over into it."
“I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” was also MLK’s last speech, a prophetic vision of what would happen the next day.
