I Exalt Thee By Pete Sanchez

Artist: Phill Driscoll
Author: Pete Sanchez, published in 1977


As a young husband and father, Pete Sanchez was seeking guidance and studying the Psalms. While meditating on Psalm 97:9, he was struck by the beauty and power of the verse, "For thou, Lord are high above all the earth." Wanting to capture this praise in song, he went to the piano and began writing. But he couldn't seem to finish it. For well over a year, he struggled to complete the song but just couldn't find the right words. Then, out of the blue, the chorus came to him. This simple song of praise, and personal cry from a worshiper's heart, is now sung by believers around the world.

 

LYRICS

For Thou, O Lord, art high above all the earth
Thou art exalted far above all gods
For Thou, O Lord, art high above all the earth
Thou art exalted far above all gods

I exalt Thee, I exalt Thee
I exalt Thee, O Lord
I exalt Thee, I exalt Thee
I exalt Thee, O Lord

Oh with all we have
And with all we are
We have come so far
To lift Your name
Lift Your name on high, Jesus
'Cause it's all about You, oh Jesus
Oh it's all about You, oh yeah yeah yeah
And this love, this song, this praise
Is what we bring to You
