Sin and it's ways grow old
All of my heart turns to stone
And I'm left with no strength to arise
I ain't need to be lifted high

Sin and it's ways lead to pain
Left here with hurt and with shame
So no longer will I leave your side
Jesus, you be lifted high

You be lifted high
You be lifted high
You be lifted high in my life
Oh God
And I fall to my knees
So it's you that they see
Not I
Jesus, you be lifted high

And even now that I'm inside your hands
Help me not to grow prideful again
Don't let me forsake sacrifice
Jesus you be lifted high

And if I'm blessed with the riches of kings
How could I ever feel that it was me
For you brought me from darkness to light
Jesus, you be lifted high

You be lifted high
You be lifted high
You be lifted high in my life
Oh God
And I fall to my knees
So it's you that they see
Not I
Jesus, you be lifted high

Oh Jesus, you be lifted high
Oh you be lifted high
Oh you be lifted high in my life
Oh God
And I fall to my knees
So it's you that they see
Not I
Jesus, you be lifted high

    I know this song has been around along time. It is the perfect picture of what a human heart surrendered to Jesus Christ looks like. Thank you Michael W. Smith.

    There is not even one reason that we can be proud over our own achievement,
    for all good things came from god,
    and only him, the holy god of israel... Whose has his hand always strengthen our feet to stand against the current of life...

    Always about him, not i. He is to be exalted and worshipped, not i. He is the center in my life, not i. Jesus is the essence of all purity and holiness; he is all truth, he is all life and the giver of it. No one and no thing can compare or even come close. He deserves my all.

    For me, this is the interpretation of the scripture which says 'it is no longer i that lives, but christ lives in me'... Gal 2:20
