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

Repeat Verse

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Lord, I lift Your name on high...


Live versionEdit

In 2005, Petra played "Lord, I Lift Your Name on High" live during the recording of their last live album, Petra Farewell. However, project coordinator Jim Cooper decided along with the band to cut it from the final version. Bob Hartman said in an interview "I can't honestly remember but I think it was a time thing." However, the song was included in the album Vertical Expressions recorded by II Guys from Petra in 2007.
