The word "exalted" means to be raised to a position of high power or status.

Philippians 2, in one of the most beautiful passages of scripture, articulates Christ's incarnation, his death, his resurrection, and his exultation. Listen to what it says -

"...Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

This passage grasps the essence of the gospel. The songs we will sing in eternity will be songs celebrating, declaring, and shouting from the depth of our lungs that Christ is the exulted King. That his death and resurrection brought victory. 

This song, Exalted Over All, uses such language. The chorus says,

"One Name is higher, One name is stronger, than any grave, than any throne, Christ exalted over all."

Oh what a victorious reality. We serve the reigning and ruling savior of the world. May our joy be found in declaring his greatness. May our hope rest in the reality that our God is greater than any fear, any doubt, any pain. May our eyes be fixed on and hearts never waver from Christ.

"We sing your praise. We sing your praise. We sing your praise forever.

We lift your name. We lift your name. JESUS OVER ALL."
