Christ Be Magnified
Cody Carnes

 

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 

Oh 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


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
