Lyrics
Higher Ground
hymn by Reverend Johnson Oatman
music by Charles H. Gabriel

1. I'm pressing (Ab)on the upward (Db)way,
New heights I'm (Ab)gaining every (Eb)day
Still praying (Ab)as I'm onward (Db)bound
"Lord,plant my (Ab)feet on high(Eb)er (Ab)ground."

CHORUS:
Lord, lift me (Ab)up and let me (Eb7)stand,
By faith on heaven's table (Ab)land,
A higher plane than I have (Db)found;
Lord, plant my (Ab)feet on high(Eb7)er (Ab)ground.

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."

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.

4. I want to scale the utmost height,
And catch a gleam of glory bright;
But still I'll pray till heaven I've found
"Lord lead me on to higher ground."
