Higher Ground Lyrics

(Arr. by Philip Nicholas & Vernessa Mitchell)

(Verse I)

Keep pressing on the upward way.

New heights you’re gaining.

Each and every day

Keep praying as you onward bound.

(And make this your prayer)

Lord plant my feet on Higher Ground.


(Verse II)

Your heart should have no desire to stay

Where doubts arise and fears dismay.

Though some may dwell where these abound.

Your prayer your aim should be on Higher Ground.


Lord lift me up and let me stand

By faith on heaven’s table land.

A higher plane that I have found

Lord plant my feet on Higher Ground.


(Verse III)

I’m going to live above this world.

Though Satan’s darts at me are hurled.

For faith has caught the joyful sound of

The song of saints on Higher Ground.

(Repeat Chorus with ad lib)



I’m pressing my way each and every day.

I’ve got to hang on in there through my trials.

Through the storm and the rain

I’ve got everything to gain.

So I’m going to move on, press on

In my Father’s Name.

(With my ups and my downs, with Satan all around)
(Lord keep me planted on Higher Ground.)

(Through the storm and the rain)
(I’ve got everything to gain.)
(Gonna move on, move on in Jesus name!)

Lord plant my feet on Higher Ground.

Higher Ground!
