Christ Exalted

Righteous Redeemer, a cross raised high,
Humbled He came, forsaken to die,
He took our sin, God in our place,
Now we sing Christ, amazing grace.

Righteous Redeemer, sent to save,
His great power conquered the grave,
Risen Savior, the Hope for man,
Forgiveness of sin, His sovereign plan.

Christ exalted, Spirit move,
Draw us near, dead hearts made new,
Great is the gospel, it’s Your fame,
Christ exalted, we proclaim.

Righteous Redeemer, seated on high,
Holy, Holy, Holy the cry,
He reigns eternal, Savior and King,
Christ Exalted, the praise we sing.

(Bridge)
This myst’ry, Christ in me, the Hope of glory,
This myst’ry, Christ in me, the Hope of glory.

Behold, my servant shall act wisely; he shall be high and lifted up, and shall be exalted.
(Isaiah 52:13 ESV)

The God of our fathers raised Jesus, whom you killed by hanging him on a tree. God exalted him at his right hand as Leader and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. And we are witnesses to these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him. (Acts 5:30-32 ESV)

And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:8-11 ESV)

To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. (Colossians 1:27 ESV)
