Utilizing quiet passages alternating with more dynamic sections to illustrate the moods of our exaltation of God, arranger Linda Lamb has crafted a potent setting of Pete Sanchez's popular praise chorus. Verses speaking of God being high above the heavens are muted and spare, while the refrain, " I Exalt Thee, O Lord," is painted with arpeggios, full chords, and a wide range of bells. Key changes lift the melody higher, until the piece subsides quietly with a calm final statement of God's greatness.
