128 - Higher Ground

I'm pressing on the Upward 

Way. New heights I'm gaining

ev'ry day. Still praying as I'm 

onward bound, "Yah, plant

my feet on Higher Ground."

 

Chorus:

Yah, lift me up and let me

stand by faith on Heaven's

Tableland, a Higher Plane

than I have found. Yah,

plant my feet on Higher 

Ground.

 

My heart has no desire to stay

where doubts arise and fears

dismay. Tho' some may dwell

where these abound, my

prayer, my aim is Higher 

Ground.

 

I want to live above the world,

though Satan's darts at me are

hurled. For faith has caught

the joyful sound, the song of

saints on Higher Ground.

 

I want to scale the utmost

height and catch a gleam of

glory bright. But still I'll 

pray 'til Heav'n I've found,

"Yah, lead me on to Higher 

Ground."
