Higher Ground Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

No voice has inspired me more than my mother's
She showed me that music is a pathway to higher ground

I'm pressin' on the upward way
New heights I'm gainin' every day
Still prayin' 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 plain than I have found
Lord, plant me 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

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

I want to scale the utmost heights
And catch a gleam of glory bright
But still, I'll pray 'til Heaven I've found
Lord, lead me on to higher ground

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