"Higher Ground"

(As recorded by Stevie Wonder)
STEVIE WONDER

People keep on learnin'
Soldiers keep on warrin'
World keep on turnin'
'Cause it won't be too long.

Powers keep on lyin'
While your people
Keep on dyin'
World, keep on turnin'
'Cause it won't be for long.

I'm so darn glad He let me try it again
'Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin
I'm so glad that I know more than I knew then
Gonna keep on tryin'
Till I reach the highest ground.

Teachers, keep on teachin'
Preachers, keep on preachin'
World, keep on turnin'
'Cause it won't be too long, oh no.

Lovers, keep on lovin'
Believers, keep on believin'
Sleepers, just start sleepin'
'Cause it won't be too long, oh no.

I'm so glad that He let me try it again
'Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin
I'm so glad that I know more than I knew then
Gonna keep on tryin'
Till I reach my highest ground, whew.

Till I reach my highest ground, oh no
No one's gonna bring me down, oh no
Till I reach my highest ground
Don't you let nobody bring you down
They'll sho 'nuff try
God is gonna show you higher ground
He's the only friend you have around.
