My Elijah Friends

(Dedicated to those faithful friends of God)

God bless all my Elijah friends,
And give them comfort, Lord, tonight -
Those faithful few who will not compromise,
Who cling to You with all their might.

God bless those precious servants, Lord,
Who are so dear to Your own heart.
They walk alone in this world at times
When friend and foes alike do part.

Taking refuge there on Higher Ground,
In that cave, sheltered from the storm;
Listening to Your still small voice
That will soothe all fear and alarm.

Hidden in the cleft of the Rock -
Outside the tempest is fierce this hour.
Give them peace within their souls;
Keep them close and safe by Your power.

Under the shadow of Your wings,
Precious Jesus, there's no other place -
Held so close beside Your heart,
Where all else dims in light of Your face.

God bless all my Elijah friends,
There's not too many left, Lord, I know.
Grant them bright rainbows in their darkest nights;
Light the darkness in this world below.

Higher Ground
(Words: Johnson Oatman, Jr. Music: Charles H. Gabriel)

Iím pressing on the upward way,
New heights Iím gaining every day;
Still praying as Iím onward bound,
ďLord, plant my feet on higher ground.Ē

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

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.

I want to live above the world,
Though Satanís darts at me are hurled;
For faith has caught the joyful sound,
The song of saints on higher ground.

I want to scale the utmost height
And catch a gleam of glory bright;
But still Iíll pray till Heavín Iíve found,
ďLord, plant my feet on higher ground.Ē
