1. 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.”
    “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 these abound,
    My pray’r, my aim, is higher ground.
    My pray’r, my aim, is 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.
    The song of saints 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, lead me on to higher ground.”
    “Lord, lead me on to higher ground.”
