#308: Higher Ground

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


I’m pressing on the upward way, New heights I’m gaining ev’ry day —

Still praying as I’m onward bound, “Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”


Lord, Lift me up and let me stand By faith on heaven’s tableland;

A higher plane than I have found — Lord, 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 pray’r my aim, is higher ground.



I want to live above the world, Tho Satan’s darts at me are hurled

For faith has caught the joyful sound, The song of saints on higher ground.



I ant to scale the utmost height And catth a gleam of glory bright;

But still I’ll pray till heav’n I’ve found, “Lord lead me on to higher ground.”
