Higher Ground



Spoken introduction by Iris Dement:
"No voice has inspired me more than my mother's
She showed me that music is a pathway to higher ground"

I'm pressing on the upward way
New heights I'm gaining every day
Still praying 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 me 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 me 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
