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
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;
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,

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.""
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.
