Lift Him Up!

Here’s the video of the classic 1992 Hosanna! album ‘Lift Him Up!’, led by Ron Kenoly. This album was one of the best recordings Hosanna! ever made.

Great instrumentals and vocals make up just over an hour of heartfelt praise and worship; especially spectacular are the vocals in the spine-tingling ‘Anointing Fall on Me‘ and ‘All Honor‘, and notably the anointed instrumentals from Justo Almario and Alex Acuña, culminating in Abraham Laboriel’s stunning bass solo in ‘Ancient of Days‘, in the instrumental section at about 28mins.

Ok, the hair and clothing styles are a bit dated, but the worship is just tremendous. The standard of musicianship is extremely high, but this does not detract from the worship in the way that today’s ‘clinically-perfect’ recordings often do. I simply wanted to share this with you in order to bless you.

Here is the track list:

Lift Him Up
Mourning into Dancing
Righteousness, Peace and Joy
The Solid Rock
Let Everything that has Breath
We will Wait upon the Lord
Ancient of Days
Hallowed Be Your Name
Anointing Fall on Me
All Honor
Going Up to the High Places
Whose Report will You Believe
Worship the Lord
Call Him Up
Can’t Stop Praisin’ His Name

So, find an hour or so, find somewhere quiet to sit, plug in your best headphones and let this video and its message flow over you. Soak in it. Drink it in. There is so much truth in this video that the music and stuff somehow become secondary:

Whose report will you believe? We shall believe the report of the Lord!

If you confess the Lord, call Him up!

Blessing and honour, glory and power, be unto the Ancient of Days!
