I’m pressing on the upward way,
new heights I’m gaining every 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 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
Tho’ some may dwell where these abound,
my prayer, 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 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.
