Verse 1: I’m pressing on the upward way, New heights I’m gaining ev’ry day; Still praying as I onward bound, “Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.” Lord
Verse 2: 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.
Verse 3: 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.
Verse 4: I want to scale the utmost height, And catch a gleam of glory bright; But still I’ll pray till heav’n I’ve found, “Lord, lead me on to higher ground.”
Chorus: Lord, lift me 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. 1. Pressing on the upward way, New heights I’m gaining ev’ry day; Praying as I onward bound, “Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.” Lift me up and let me stand, By faith, on heaven’s tableland, Higher plane than I have found; Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.
