Standing on Holy Ground

The song was written by American Pentecostal gospel music composer and singer Geron Davis (b 1960).   It is based on Genesis 28:17.

It was originally published in 1983 by the Meadowgreen Music Company.

The chorus is sometimes used by itself as a short worship song.

It is set to an unnamed tune, also by Davis. This has a 4/4 time signature. In the key of C, the first few notes of the chorus are C E G_ G_ G G A A AG_ with accompanying chords C / G7 / C / F / C.

It is not the same as  (This is) Holy Ground by the Christopher Beatty.

Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website. A rough outline is:
1   As I walked through the door, I sensed His presence ...

Chorus:
We are standing on holy ground,
And I know there are angels all around.
Let us praise Jesus now,
We are standing in His presence, on holy ground.

2   In His presence there is joy beyond all measure ...

See more ...


KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
As I walked through the door, I sensed His presence
And I knew this was a place where love abounds
For this is the temple, Jehovah God abides here
We are standing in His presence on holy ground

Chorus:
We are standing on holy ground
And I know there are angels all around
Let us praise Jesus now
We are standing in His presence on holy ground

2   In His presence there is joy beyond all measure
And at His feet peace of mind can still be found
And if you have a need, I know He has the answer
Reach out and claim it for we are standing on holy ground.
