The lips of the righteous feed many,
but fools die for lack of wisdom.

1 Samuel 26
Inspiring Hymns #345
I’m pressing on the upward way, new heights I’m gaining ev’ry day; Still praying as I onward bound, “Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”
My heart has no desire to stay where doubts arise and fears dismay; Tho’ some may dwell where these abound, my prayer, my aim, is higher ground.
I want to live above the world, tho’ Satan’s darts at me are hurled; For faith has caught the joyful sound, the song of saints on higher ground.
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, lead me on to higher ground.”
Chorus: Lord, lift me up and let me stand, by faith, on heaven’s tableland, A higher plane than I have found; Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.
