HIGHER GROUND




I'm pressing on
the upward way,
New heights
I'm gaining every day;
Still praying as
I'm onward bound,
"Lord, plant my feet
on higher ground."

Lord, lift my up
and let me stand,
By faith,
on heaven's tableland;
Where love, and joy,
and light abound,
Lord, plant my feet
on higher ground.



My heart has
no desire to stay
Where doubts arise,
and fears dismay;
Though some may dwell
where these abound,
My constant aim
is higher ground.

Lord, lift my up
and let me stand,
By faith,
on heaven's tableland;
Where love, and joy,
and light abound,
Lord, plant my feet
on higher ground.



Beyond the mist
I fain would rise,
To rest beneath
unclouded skies,
Above earth's turmoil
peace is found
By those who dwell
on higher ground.

Lord, lift my up
and let me stand,
By faith,
on heaven's tableland;
Where love, and joy,
and light abound,
Lord, plant my feet
on higher ground.



I long to scale
the utmost height.
Tho' rough the way,
and hard the fight,
My song, while climbing,
shall, shall resound,
Lord, lead me on
to higher ground.

Lord, lift my up
and let me stand,
By faith,
on heaven's tableland;
Where love, and joy,
and light abound,
Lord, plant my feet
on higher ground.



Lord, lead me up
the mountain side,
I dare not climb
without my Guide;
And, heaven gained,
I'll gaze around,
With grateful heart
from higher ground.

Lord, lift my up
and let me stand,
By faith,
on heaven's tableland;
Where love, and joy,
and light abound,
Lord, plant my feet
on higher ground.

Though Satanís darts

For faith has caught

The song of saints

And catch a gleam
