1. Jesus said, “If I be lifted up,
“I will surely draw all men unto me”
So as Moses raised the serpent in the wilderness
So high and lifted up must Jesus be
See Him on the cross, His eyes of love
Looking down on all who stood and watched His shame
As they mocked Him, and they scourged Him, God turned His eyes away
While high and lifted up, He took the blame

High and lifted up, a loving Savior
High and lifted up for all to see
Reconciling God and man forever
High and lifted up on Calvary

2. Jesus said, “I’ll surely come again
“That where I may be you will be near”
So I’m looking toward the Heavens, up to the Eastern Sky
Where high and lifted up He shall appear
There to meet a Bride adorned and waiting
As all of Heaven’s angels start to sing
Never more to be a lowly man of Galilee
As high and lifted up we see the King, the King

High and lifted up in all His glory
High and lifted up in robes of white
Coming back to rule and reign forever
High and lifted up on clouds of light

High and lifted up in all His glory
High and lifted up in robes of white
Coming back to rule and reign forever
High and lifted up
High and lifted up
He is high and lifted up on clouds of light
High and lifted up is Jesus Christ
