​Higher Ground

This song is by Steve Green and appears on the album For God And God Alone (1986).

Build your house above the ocean
Build your house on higher ground
Build above the world's commotion
And its mesmerizing sound
You're taking your life into your hands
By building your castles in the sand
So build up high above the tide
Build on higher ground

In the world, but not of it
Caught in the storm, we've got to rise above it
Waves of ungodliness eroding the shore
It's a treacherous sea, too wild to ignore

Build your house above the ocean
Build your house on higher ground
Build above the world's commotion
And its mesmerizing sound
You're taking your life into your hands
By building your castles in the sand
So build up high above the tide
Build on higher ground

God is calling us to remain unstained
In the rising flood of sin
And it's easier to keep it out
If we don't invite it in

Build your house above the ocean
Build your house on higher ground
Build above the world's commotion
And its mesmerizing sound
You're taking your life into your hands
By building your castles in the sand
So build up high above the tide
Build on higher ground

You're taking your life into your hands
By building your castles in the sand
So build up high above the tide
Build on higher ground
You've got to build on higher ground
Build on higher ground
