Higher Ground Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Walk me over this horizon
Let the sun's light warm my face
Once again the times are changing
Once again I've lost my way

While the words of ancient poets
Fall like dust upon my shoes
Greed has grabbed me of my vision
Turned my heart from higher truths

So take my hand and lift me higher
Be my love and my desire
Hold me safe in honor bound
Take my heart to higher ground

I have walked too long in darkness
I have walked too long alone
Blindly clutching fist of diamonds
That I found were only stones

I would trade the wealth of ages
For a warmer hand to hold
Though the path of life is narrow
But it leads the streets of gold

So take my hand and lift me higher
Be my love and my desire
Hold me safe in honor bound
Take my heart to higher ground

In this world we move through shadows
Never sure of what we see
While the truth abides between us
Come and share the truth with me

So take my hand and lift me higher
Be my love and my desire
Hold me safe in honor bound
Take my heart to higher ground
