Lord I Lift Your Name On High

Written by Rick Founds
Links to contributors: Rick Founds

This has been one of my favorite songs for years. I contacted Rick back in 2002 about collaborating, partly because I had sung this song so many times. The recording is from Rick's Praise Classics 2 CD. - Elton, September 12, 2009



Lyrics

Lord, I lift Your name on high.
Lord, I love to sing Your praises.
I'm so glad You're in my life;
I'm so glad You came to save us.

You came from Heaven to earth
To show the way.
From the Earth to the cross,
My debt to pay.
From the cross to the grave,
From the grave to the sky;
Lord, I lift Your name on high.

Lord, I lift Your name on high.
Lord, I love to sing Your praises.
I'm so glad You're in my life;
I'm so glad You came to save us.

You came from Heaven to earth
To show the way.
From the Earth to the cross,
My debt to pay.
From the cross to the grave,
From the grave to the sky;
Lord, I lift Your name on high.

You came from Heaven to earth
To show the way.
From the Earth to the cross,
My debt to pay.
From the cross to the grave,
From the grave to the sky;
Lord, I lift Your name on high.

You came from Heaven to earth
To show the way.
From the Earth to the cross,
My debt to pay.
From the cross to the grave,
From the grave to the sky;
Lord, I lift Your name on high.

Br Francis2013-04-28When I first heard this song it was at a rehearsal I was asked to attend because I was auditioning to join Ireland Arise Choir which involved all the churches here in Northern Ireland & the Republic of Ireland as it was made up of people right across our nation and this could only happen when God is on the Move and that is where I heard this song and now I know it by heart and sung in across the world in many events. Many of these songs here are well known to me and they have blessed me in so many ways as God uses these lovely songs to teach us and to open our heart to Him. The Christian people of Northern Ireland kept praying for peace in our nation and that is why this song is so very important top all of us as when we sung it in Belfast peace came to Northern Ireland after a bloody war that lasted 30 years and seen so many people killed and so God is still bringing down walls in all of our Hearts so lets sing Lord I Lift Your Name On High across our nations and bring us everlasting peace throughout the land. Amen
