I’m pressing on the upward way

New heights I’m gaining everyday

Still praying as I onward bound

Lord plant my feet on higher ground.

I’M PRESSING ON THE UPWARD WAY: CHORUS

Lord lift me up and let me stand

By faith on heaven’s table land

Where love and joy and light abound

Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.

Verse 2

My heart has no desire to stay

Where doubt arise and fears dismay

Though some may dwell where these abound

My constant aim is higher ground.

Verse 3

Beyond the mist I fain would rise

To rest beneath unclouded skies

Above earth’s turmoil peace is found

By those who dwell on higher ground.

Verse 4

I long to scale the utmost height

Though rough the way, and hard the fight,

My song while climbing shall resound,

Lord lead me on higher ground.

Verse 5

Lord lead me up the mountain side

I dare not climb without my guide

Ans, heaven gained, I’ll gaze around

With grateful heart from higher ground.

He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights.

One of the challenges I encountered as a beginner saxophonist was getting correct solfa notation of gospel songs that I love. I am therefore posting lyrics and solfa notations for songs that I enjoy playing on the saxophone.

It is also my contribution to assist beginners and lovers of gospel music.
