Exaltation

[Edited: Something extra added at the end worthy of note.]

Brings me to my knees every time I hear this. I sing it during my evening prayers. I think no other words are necessary. Lord’s blessing this Lord’s Day Morning! Dedicated to all believers in Christ across the globe. And to all those who will be so in the future as long as it is called “Today!”

God again set a certain day, calling it “Today.” This he did when a long time later he spoke through David, as in the passage already quoted:

“Today, if you hear his voice,

    do not harden your hearts.”

Hebrews 4:7


Phil Driscoll gave up a very lucrative recording contract in the Blues category. Instead, he did it to record music praising his newfound Savior only, and his music found a new depth of meaning.

His recording of “I Exalt Thee” expresses his depth of heart in giving up earthly riches for the authentic and eternal freedom he found in Christ. His version is a very personal and profoundly reflective joy of being. (Approximately 1984-ish).

Toward the middle of this recording the background instruments begin emerging, as though the instruments of heaven are gathering about him in support of his humble adoration and praise of our Savior.

  1. A favorite song of mine as well GW! Every once in a while it makes the song docket on a Sunday morning and it is so powerful hearing it sung by a congregation acapella. You are absolutely right “No other words are needed.”
