Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

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." 

2.	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. 

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. 

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, lift me up and let me stand, 
	By faith, on heaven's table-land, 
	A higher plane than I have found; 
	Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.
