Words and music: Johnson Oatman Jr, Charles Hutchinson Gabriel From: Guitar Picker - www.gospelmusic.org.uk Higher Ground A D I’m pressing on the upward way, A E7 New heights I’m gaining every day; A D Still praying as I’m onward bound, A E7 A “Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.” Chorus: A E7 Lord, lift me up and let me stand, A By faith, on heaven’s table land, D A higher plane than I have found; A E7 A 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 these abound, My prayer, my aim, is higher ground. Chorus 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. Chorus 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.” ChorusHome
