MAY YOU BE EXALTED


May You be exalted in my life
In my life, in my life
May You be exalted in my life
Dear Lord be exalted in me

May You be exalted in my school
In my school, in my school
May You be exalted in my school
Dear Lord be exalted in me

May You be exalted in our church
In our church, in our church
May You be exalted in our church
Dear Lord be exalted in me

May You be exalted in our world
In our world, in our world
May You be exalted in our world
Dear Lord be exalted in me
 

Dear Lord be exalted,
Lord be exalted,
Lord be exalted in me

It's strange where ideas for songs come from...
When my youngest was a baby, I used to hold her in my arms,
lower her to the floor, and quickly swing her upwards
until she was snuggled against my shoulder. 
This swooping motion always caused her to giggle;
this movement also became the seed for the "swooping" melody
of the "may you" phrase at the beginning of each line of this chorus.

On the spur of the moment during recording,
I decided to experiment and slide a D chord from first fret
to the second, musically matching the "may you" phrase.
Although quite effective, my fingers hurt for days afterwards !!!

 

Recorded on:       "Before The Coming Lord" (1992)
