Higher Ground Lyrics & Chords

By Johnson Oatman, Jr.

Verse 1 (D)I m pressing on the upward (G)way New heights I'm (D)gaining every (A)day Still praying (D)as I onward (G)bound "Lord, plant my (D)feet on (A)higher (D)ground." Chorus (D)Lord, lift me up and let me (A)stand By faith on heaven's table (D)land A higher plane than I have (G)found Lord, plant my (D)feet on (A)higher (D)ground. Verse 2 My heart has no desire to stay Where doubts arise and fears dismay; Though some may dwell where these abound, My prayer, my aim, is higher ground. Chorus Lord, lift me up, and let me stand By faith on Canaan’s tableland; A higher plane than I have found, Lord, plant my feet on higher ground. Verse 3 I want to live above the world, Though 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 rest I’ve found, “Lord, lead me on to higher ground.”.
