Christ Exalted

cross-2713356_1920

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).

Almighty Eternal

Almighty Eternal, Your praises we sing,
For who is like You our God and King?
No one has seen all Your splendor and light,
But, O Holy One, what a majestic sight…

Almighty Eternal, You never change,
Great are You, LORD, and great to be praised;
You’re perfect in power, wisdom and love,
All glory to You in the heavens above.

Almighty Eternal, the LORD is His name,
All glorious, victorious, may we spread Your fame;
You’re the Alpha-Omega, beginning and end,
Unchanging, Creator, Redeemer and Friend.

Precious Redeemer, the glorious Son,
By Your sacrifice, victory won,
Our Bridegroom, and Savior, You came to die,
God sent God to redeem His bride.

Almighty Eternal, the LORD is His name,
All glorious, victorious, may we spread Your fame;
You’re the Alpha-Omega, beginning and end,
Unchanging, Creator…

Your great power,
You spoke and made all,
Heaven and earth,
Your glorious plan.

Your glory demands our praise.
Your glory demands our praise.
Your glory demands our praise.

Almighty Eternal, How glorious is He?
One God, Three Persons, in Trinity.
God the Father, the Spirit, Son,
Forever together, in harmony – One.

Almighty Eternal, the LORD is His name,
All glorious, victorious, may we spread Your fame;
You’re the Alpha-Omega, beginning and end,
Unchanging, Creator, Redeemer and Friend.

Your glory demands our praise.
Your glory demands our praise.
Your glory demands our praise.

Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel
and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts:
“I am the first and I am the last;
besides me there is no god.

Who is like me? Let him proclaim it.
Let him declare and set it before me,
since I appointed an ancient people.
Let them declare what is to come, and what will happen.

Fear not, nor be afraid;
have I not told you from of old and declared it?
And you are my witnesses!
Is there a God besides me?
There is no Rock; I know not any.”
(Isaiah 44:6-8 ESV)

Stand

audience-868074_1920

I stand to praise You,
My tongue to sing Your Word,
I close – my eyes to worship.

My heart burns within me,
Voices of joy are raised,
Echoes – for Your glory.

Lips of sinners saved,
Our voices are raised…

Stand and praise Him all the nations,
Praise the King of Heaven,
Worthy is His name,
Worthy is His name,

Sing the song of our Salvation,
To the One who saved us,
Worthy is His name,
Worthy is His name.

I stand under Grace,
Freed from the wrath deserved,
I long – to see Your face.

When I will stand,
Before Your judgment throne,
I’ll kneel – like every man.

With hope in Christ alone,
Redeemed as His own…

Stand up and praise Him,
Stand up and praise Him,
Stand up and praise Him,
He is the Lord.

My lips will pour forth praise, for you teach me your statutes. My tongue will sing of your word, for all your commandments are right. (Psalm 119:171-172 ESV)
