Higher Ground

Higher Ground

I see a light
Ahead of me
From higher ground
It’s beckoning
Darkness below me
I know there’s only one way up, one way up

The darkness tries
To pull me down
But I am strong
And glory-bound
The battle rages
Strong and courageous I will rise, I will rise
I know where this road takes me
And nothing’s gonna shake me

Got my eyes fixed ahead
Got my feet on the path
This road is uphill
But I’m not turning back
Destination worth climbing for
Know what I’m fighting for
I can’t come down
I’m headed for higher ground
I’m headed for higher ground

The easy road
Is not for me
For I am called
To greater things
Each step I’m choosing
Will keep me moving to the top, to the top
I know where this road takes me
And nothing’s gonna shake me

Got my eyes fixed ahead
Got my feet on the path
This road is uphill
But I’m not turning back
Destination worth climbing for
Know what I’m fighting for
I can’t come down
I’m headed for higher ground
I’m headed for higher ground

Higher Ground
Higher Ground
Higher Ground
I know where this road takes me
And nothing’s gonna shake me

Got my eyes fixed ahead
Got my feet on the path
This road is uphill
But I’m not turning back
Destination worth climbing for
Know what I’m fighting for
I can’t come down
I’m headed for higher ground

Eyes fixed ahead
Got my feet on the path
This road is uphill
But I’m not turning back
Destination worth climbing for
Know what I’m fighting for
I can’t come down
I’m headed, I’m headed

My eyes fixed ahead
Got my feet on the path
This road is uphill
But I’m not turning back
Destination worth climbing for
Know what I’m fighting for
I can’t come down
I’m headed for higher ground
I’m headed for higher ground
I’m headed for higher ground
Headed for higher ground
