http://creation.com/creation-answers This is the most popular Christian song ever.
Its amazing to see how this Rick Founds song has reached all corners of the Earth and is well known across the globe in every continent. It reminds you that sometimes the best songs are not complex at all but very simple indeed.
Rick Founds wrote this song while in Morning devotion, he thought of GOD's plan of salvation as sort of a cycle and thus the famous chorus was born "You came.... Lord I Lift Your Name on High"
Maranatha quickly recorded the song as he had worked with and was was friends with members of the Maranatha! Singers and Praise Band (2 supposedly separate groups but whose members OVERLAPPED lol, Praise Band was more rock/guitar driven while Maranatha! Singers remained "classic style").
Maranatha's singers (This one) and Praise Band's versions were the very first time that this song had been recorded and as they say THE REST IS HISTORY.
