Chorus:
Build your house above the ocean
Build your house on higher ground
Build above the world's commotion
And it's 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

Verse:
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

Chorus:
Build your house above the ocean
Build your house on higher ground
Build above the world's commotion
And it's 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

Bridge:
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

Chorus:
Build your house above the ocean
Build your house on higher ground
Build above the world's commotion
And it's 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

Higher Ground Lyrics

Steve Green – Higher Ground Lyrics

Chorus:
Build your house above the ocean
Build your house on higher ground
Build above the world's commotion
And it's 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

Verse:
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

Chorus:
Build your house above the ocean
Build your house on higher ground
Build above the world's commotion
And it's 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

Bridge:
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

Chorus:
Build your house above the ocean
Build your house on higher ground
Build above the world's commotion
And it's mesmerizing sound
You're taking your life into your hands

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
