Isaiah 33:5
"The LORD is exalted; for he dwelleth on high:
he hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness."

          Christ the Savior came from heaven's glory,
          To redeem the lost from sin and shame;
          On His brow He wore the thorn crown gory,
          And upon Calvary He took my blame.

            Chorus
            He lives on high, He lives on high,
            Triumphant over sin and all its stain;
            He lives on high, He lives on high,
            Someday He's coming again.

          He arose from death and all its sorrow,
          To dwell in that land of joy and love;
          He is coming back some glad tomorrow,
          And He'll take all His children home above.

            Chorus
            He lives on high, He lives on high,
            Triumphant over sin and all its stain;
            He lives on high, He lives on high,
            Someday He's coming again.

          Weary soul, to Jesus come confessing,
          Redemption from sin He offers thee;
          Look to Jesus and receive a blessing,
          There is life, there is joy and victory.

            Chorus
            He lives on high, He lives on high,
            Triumphant over sin and all its stain;
            He lives on high, He lives on high,
            Someday He's coming again.
