Higher Ground

Lyrics: Johnson Oatman Jr.
Music: Charles H. Gabriel



I知 pressing on the upward way,
New heights I知 gaining every day;
Still praying as I知 onward bound,
鏑ord, plant my feet on higher ground.

Refrain
Lord, lift me up and let me stand,
By faith, on Heaven痴 table land,
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;
Though some may dwell where those abound,
My prayer, my aim, is higher ground.

Refrain

I want to live above the world,
Though Satan痴 darts at me are hurled;
For faith has caught the joyful sound,
The song of saints on higher ground.

Refrain

I want to scale the utmost height
And catch a gleam of glory bright;
But still I値l pray till Heav地 I致e found,
鏑ord, plant my feet on higher ground.

Refrain
