1 I'm pressing on the upward way,
New height I'm gaining every day;
Still praying as I onward bound,
"Lord, plant my feet on higher ground."

Refrain:
Lord, lift me up and let me stand
By faith on heaven's tableland,
A higher plane than I have found;
Lord, plant my feet on higher 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. (Refrain)

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. (Refrain)

4 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." (Refrain)
