Representative Text

1 Lift me higher, blessed Savior,
To the source of life,
Where the living fountain floweth,
Far from sin and strife.

Higher, higher, lift me higher,
In the light above;
From the depths of sin and sorrow,
To the heights above.

2 Lift me higher, that, triumphant,
I may sing and soar;
In the calm of blest assurance,
Keep me evermore. [Refrain]

3 Onward, onward I am pressing
To the mount of God;
Lead me up the shining pathway
That Thy feet have trod. [Refrain]
