  G                            C
1 I'm press-ing on the up-ward way, 
2 My heart has no  de-sire  to stay
3 I want to live  a-bove  the  world,
4 I want to  scale the ut-most height

                  G               D
1 New heights I'm gain-ing ev-'ry day;
2 Where doubts a -rise and fears  dis-may;
3 Though Sa-tan's darts at me are hurled;
4 And catch a     gleam of glo-ry bright;

  G                                    C
1 Still pray-ing as I on-ward          bound,
2 Tho' some may dwell where these a   -bound
3 For faith has caught the joy-ful     sound
4 But still I'll pray till heav'n I've found,

  Am    C          G              D  G
1"Lord  plant my   feet on   high-er ground."
2 My    prayer, my aim is    high-er ground.
3 The   song of    saints on high-er ground.
4"lord, lead me    on to     high-er ground."

Chorus

G                           D7                                  G
Lord, lift me up and let me stand By faith, on heav-en's ta-ble-land,

                            C      Am   C        G            D  G
A high-er plane than I have found; Lord plant my feet on high-er ground.
