Words and music by Rick Founds

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

    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!

    I think it means that the writer was so amazed that Jesus was willing to give up his life for all of us sinners who were dead, alive ate the time, and weren't even born yet! It means God was willing to give up his own son so that we could come to heaven and spend eternity with him. It means that Jesus died for me, you, your next-door neighbour, your uncle, your bestie, and even your arch enemy. He wants everyone, whether they want him or not. He came down here in the form of a normal human being, to this sinful world, got ridiculed, spat on, beaten, and then finally, we committed what I believe was the most horrible murder the world ever committed, we nailed the son of God, to a tree. And then he went back to heaven to prepare a place for me, a place for you, a place for your next-door neighbour, your uncle, your bestie, he's even preparing a place for your arch enemy. If God cares for the sparrows, how much more does he care for you?

    It means that we are lifting gods name to the highest point in our lifes and we thank him for all the great thing he has done for our friends and familys that take care of us we should all be thankful of what the lord has done for us

    I love this song. It has got an amazing power. Indeed the name of the lord should be lifted high. There is nothing in this world which is as sweet as worshipg gom. Let us continue to worship him in truth and in spirit. You are loved unconditionally by god
