Highly Exalted

Robin Mark, Paul Baloche

Verse 1
You were despised
You were rejected, Lord.
Those who passed by
Even averted their gaze from your sight
Such was the suffering you bore for us.

Led like a lamb, a lamb to the slaughter
You spoke not a word
But chose to be silent
Though you did no wrong
Nor was deceitfulness found in you.

Yet by your wounds our salvation has come
Yet by your suffering our freedom is won!

Chorus
For God has highly exalted your name!
He has enthroned you on high,
Jesus the name above all names!

God has highly exalted your name!
He has enthroned you on high,
Jesus the name above all names.

Verse 2
You were despised
You were rejected, Lord.
Those who passed by
Even averted their gaze from your sight.
Such was the suffering you bore for us.

Led like a lamb, a lamb to the slaughter
You spoke not a word,
But chose to be silent
Though you did no wrong
Nor was deceitfulness found in you.

Yet by your wounds our salvation has come
Yet by your suffering our freedom is won!

Chorus
For God has highly exalted your name!
He has enthroned you on high,
Jesus the name above all names!

God has highly exalted your name!
He has enthroned you on high,
Jesus the name above all names!

Jesus, the name above all.
