"THE UPPER ROAD"

Verse 1
I’m traveling on the upper road, for that still holds the sun,
And I’m climbing through the meadows
Where the starry rivers run, ooooh.
If you should want to see me in my old dark abode,
You’ll find this writing on the wall: “She’s on the upper road.”-

Verse 2
I used to sit and sympathize with the sorrows in my life,
And I waited for the hour when my troubles would subside.
But a voice called out, “Come up and see the side you cannot view.
Above the clouds the sun is shining bright and skies are blue.”

Chorus 1
The upper road, oh, that’s the road where I want to be,
I want to scale the heights where Heaven’s leading me.
I’ll say goodbye to sadness now, the way to live I’ve found;
Lord, lead me on [Lord lead me on] to higher ground.

Verse 3
I started traveling right away,
It was the nighttime, cold and bleak,
But the mountain air was comforting and dried my teary cheeks.
I couldn’t see a step ahead, but angels kept my feet,
And with the sunrise came a song that set my spirit free!

Chorus 2
The upper road, oh, that’s the road where I want to be,
I want to scale the heights where Heaven’s leading me.
I’ll say goodbye to sorrow now,
The way to live I’ve found; Lord, lead me on

Chorus 3
[The upper road! Oh, that’s the road] that’s where I wanna be,
I want to scale the heights where Heaven’s leading me.
I’ll say goodbye to sadness now, the way to live I’ve found;
Lord, lead me on and on to higher ground!
