I have no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay
Though some may dwell where these abound,
My prayer, my aim, is higher ground.
I want to scale the utmost height
And catch a gleam of glory bright;
For faith has caught the joyful sound,
The song of love on higher ground.
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.
These lines penned by businessman Johnson Oatman, author of 3,000 hymns, resonate in me daily as we hold devotions, as we come to church on Sunday, or as we start Bible Study. Knowing Jesus better is exciting, uplifting and encouraging. Welcome to KBC today as together we seek to move to Higher Ground.
