Unfamiliar Words In Songs We Sing In Worship: Table-land

Today we are looking at “Table-land” which is found in the hymn, Higher Ground. The following comment on this phrase was written by Mike Riley

“In this hymn we sing of “heaven’s table-land,” but to what does this refer? A table-land is a broad, level area, such as a plateau. “Heaven’s table-land” is a poetic way of describing the bliss of Heaven where we will be on a plateau “above” all of the temptations, cares, and trials of this world.”
