Christ Be Magnified

Were creation suddenly articulate
With a thousand tongues to lift one cry


Then from North to South and East to West
We'd hear Christ be magnified

Were the whole Earth echoing His eminence
His name would burst from sea and sky


From rivers to the mountain tops
We'd hear Christ be magnified

Oh! Christ be magnified
Let His praise arise
Christ be magnified in me


Oh! Christ be magnified
From the altar of my life
Christ be magnified in me

When every creature finds its inmost melody
And every human heart its

native cry


then in one enraptured hymn

of praise
We'll sing Christ be magnified


Oh, be lifted high, Jesus

Oh! Christ be magnified
Let His praise arise
Christ be magnified in me


Oh! Christ be magnified
From the altar of my life
Christ be magnified in me

I won't bow to idols, I'll stand strong and worship You
And if it puts me in the fire, I'll rejoice 'cause You're there too


I won't be formed by feelings, I hold fast to what is true
If the cross brings transformation then I'll be crucified with You


'Cause death is just the doorway into resurrection life
And if I join You in Your suffering, then I'll join You when You rise


And when You return in glory with all the angels and the saints
My heart will still be singing, my song will be the same

Oh! Christ be magnified
Let His praise arise
Christ be magnified in me


Oh! Christ be magnified
From the altar of my life
Christ be magnified in me
