Music to touch your spirit. . .

"I might not be a religious man myself but I know good music when I hear it, and this is very good! . . . I don’t think that I have ever given such high ratings to so many songs before. But the fact is that they are well deserved because the music is amazing. Simply wonderful religious ballads and they really get to your heart. . .everytime."

The Son is risen, risen today,
He is the One most holy, Glorify His name.
Glorify the Lord of hosts, let your voice proclaim,
He is lifted up to glory, Glorify His name!

He is lifted up, lifted up on high,
Lift Him up, lift His Name up high!

Jesus Christ is risen, risen today,
He is the King of glory, now and forever the same.
Angels join in choruses, praises to proclaim,
He is lifted up to glory, Glorify His name!

He is lifted up, lifted up on high,
Lift Him up, lift His Name up high!
Lifted up, lifted up on high,
Lift Him up, lift His Name up high!

Glorify the Lord of Hosts, lift His name up high,
He is lifted up to glory, lift His name up high.
He is lifted up to glory, lift His name up high.
He is lifted up to glory, lift His name up high.
He is lifted up to glory, lift His name up high.
Lift His name up high!

"Wonderful." (TraxInSpace)This moving praise and worship song encourages all believers to worship the risen Lord. Jesus has been lifted up to Glory and Christians glorify Him by lifting His name up high. This song by Selah features Don on a Bruce Horsby-style piano along with Odie’s great lead guitar fills

"Wonderful. Here's another well deserved 10." Fredrik Cole: Trax in Space

Song Story

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the single historical event that separates Christianity from all other faiths. No other religion can produce the evidence that proves they serve a living God. Yet, because Christ was crucified and lifted up to glory, believers can glorify Christ who is alive and lives in them. Without the resurrection Christianity fails to be relevant. For without this single historical miracle there is no forgiveness of sin, eternal life or abundant life on earth. Yet Christ lives in glory. Lift Him Up proclaims this fact and calls on the worshipper to glorify Jesus because He was risen from the dead.

Though this message is generally reserved for Easter, it stands as the foundation of the Christian faith. Therefore, I decided to write a praise song that calls on Christians to acknowledge the resurrection of Christ every day. It was designed as an Easter song that could be utilized in congregational praise all year round.

When I first played the song for Vanessa she was immediately enthused. At once we huddled around the piano and began to sing it as a duet. A week or so later, when we showed it to Selah, they were so excited about the duet that we decided to leave the parts that Vanessa and I wrote intact. Virginia and Mitch added some very nice harmonies to the chorus and the second verse that gave those parts needed punch. The part that is especially cool is when the group sings about angels joining in the chorus of praise. It is exhilarating.

The Bruce Hornsby style piano is the centerpiece of the instrumentals. However, I wanted some dynamic lead guitar to fill things out. On-and-off I had ministered with Odie Crabtree, one of the best lead guitarists in Bakersfield. His guitar had added a lot to an earlier project that I produced at Calvary Chapel, so I called him up once again.

Odie does not just play guitar. He composes on it. Therefore, every lead that he puts down has been meticulously prepared down to the tinniest harmonic. This produces great parts, but when you get Odie in the studio he costs you a lot of money. Hell play a part and everyone will think it is just fine. But by the look on his face you can tell that it is not. No, you got to run the take one again because there was some little iota that he didnt get just right. The experience is frustrating for all, but the results are always tremendous. His parts on this cut attest to this fact.

We hope that you will use this song in your daily worship. The resurrection of Christ is something that we daily live in and benefit from. This wonderful miracle is the major reason why we can give thanksgiving and praise to Him.
