Hymn for Today

  1.            Higher Ground

  2. 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.”
    • Refrain:
      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.
  3. My heart has no desire to stay
    Where doubts arise and fears dismay;
    Though some may dwell where those abound,
    My prayer, my aim, is higher ground.
  4. 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.
  5. 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, plant my feet on higher ground.”

Sometimes we don't know where the Lord is leading us. Like the path in the picture, we can't see the destination. We know, however, that God is leading us to higher ground - and not only will He lead us, He will help us and even carry us when we can't go on alone. Pray the prayer from this hymn, "Lord, plant my feet on higher ground."

Thanks for sharing - I've been thinking about the hymn "How Deep the Father's Love for Us" today.
