Higher Ground / I’m pressing on the upward way / Lord lift me up and let me stand

Song based on the Bible verse:
Micah 4:2
Many nations shall come and say,
“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
He will teach us His ways,
And we shall walk in His paths.”
For out of Zion the law shall go forth,
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

1
I’m pressing on the upward way
New heights I’m gaining every day
Still praying as I’m onward bound
Lord plant my feet on higher ground

Lord lift me up and let me stand
By faith on Heaven’s table land
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 those abound
My prayer my aim is higher ground

Lord lift me up and let me stand
By faith on Heaven’s table land
A higher plane than I have found
Lord plant my feet on 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

Lord lift me up and let me stand
By faith on Heaven’s table land
A higher plane than I have found
Lord plant my feet on higher ground

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 plant my feet on higher ground

Lord lift me up and let me stand
By faith on Heaven’s table land
A higher plane than I have found
Lord plant my feet on higher ground
