Ideas for use
A song of adoration, “He is exalted” is also an expression of personal faith commitment (“I will praise his name!”). It is suited for singing at the opening of worship but also as a song of response, perhaps after an appropriate scripture reading.
The single verse bears repetition and its first half can be effectively sung in hushed tones.
