Higher Ground  Misc. Gospel

[A]I’m pressing on the upward [D]way,
New heights I’m [A]gaining every [E7]day;
Still [A]praying as I’m onward [D]bound,
“Lord, plant my [A]feet on hig[E7]her [A]ground.”

[A]Lord, lift me up and let me [E7]stand,
By faith, on heaven’s table [A]land,
A higher plane than I have [D]found;
Lord, plant my [A]feet on hig[E7]her [A]ground.

My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay;
Though 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 till heaven I’ve found,
“Lord, lead me on to higher ground.”
