(Verse)
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

Repeat Verse

Lord, I lift Your name on high...

    No matter how high i reach to god, it will never be enough, he had to come down in order to reach. His relationship with me is because he reached down. Therefore i can only lift his name on high.

    It is an awesome song about how Christ was willing to come down from heaven, live a perfect life on earth, and then die a gruesome death on the cross for us! Praise the lord that he didn't stay dead, but he rose from the dead and is alive today! I'm so thankful for his sacrifice so that my sins could be forgiven and i am now seen as righteous before god!

    This means that jesus died on the cross for our sins and becuase of that we are able to have new life in all that we do. He died, so that we may live, he rose, so that we may prosper. Help me holy ghost!

    My meaning of this song is to show that jesus died for each and everyone of us and to show that he loves us he will take out of his busy schedule to do what he has to do for us.
