Higher Ground

Higher Ground

Johnson Oatman Jr & Ada R. Haberson

Verse 1
I’m pressing on the upward way, new heights I’m gaining everyday
Still praying as I onward bound
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground”


Lord, lift me up and let me stand, By faith, on heaven’s table land
Where love, and joy, and light abound, lord plant my feet on higher ground

Verse 2
My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise, and fears dismay
Tho’ some may dwell where these abound
My constant aim is higher ground.


Verse 3
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

Verse 4
I long to scale the utmost height
Tho’ rough the way, and hard the fight
My song, while climbing, shall resound
Lord, lead me on to higher ground


Verse 5
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
