About This Song


This song was a bit of a travel down memory lane as I considered where I had been and what Jesus had done to bring me to where I am.

The singer is Joe Thompson.

Feedback Requested


Yes, all feedback is welcome.

I really think it is good. The message is wonderful and your voice sounded unique and cool. Washed in the blood in the chorus sometimes sounds a little off key (who am I to say anything, I am off key all the time). It is not the end of the world, but the title is already another song. Is there another chorus title you could use?  I don’t know, like God raised me up, instead of he.

Thanks for the feedback Andrea!  Not to throw my singer under the bus… his name is Joe Thompson and I think he has a cool, unique sound, too.  I really like the way he phrases lyrics.  However, he was a bit “pitchy” that day.  We didn’t use any pitch correction and probably should have…  Good point about the title.  Thanks!

He Raised Me Up

Written by Rick McGee

For years I was wandering, nowhere near the light
Always chasing worldly dreams, thought I was living right
But the darkness had deceived me, I was walking among the dead
Then I met the King of Kings, whose blood for me was shed

He raised me up, and I praise his name
Jesus my Lord, forever reigns
I will never be the same, I’ve been washed in the blood
Gone are sinful ways, gone are dark filled days
He raised me up He raised me up

Like a new born fawn on trembling legs, still learning how to stand
Letting go the fear of falling, He holds me in his hands
His saving grace surrounds me, I will follow faithfully
I’m walking with the King of Kings, who died to set me free

He raised me up, and I praise his name
Jesus my Lord, forever reigns
I will never be the same, I’ve been washed in the blood
Gone are sinful ways, gone are dark filled days
He raised me up

(Instrumental / bridge)
His saving grace surrounds me, I will follow faithfully
I’m walking with the King of Kings, who died to set me free

He raised me up, and I praise his name
Jesus my Lord, forever reigns
I will never be the same, I’ve been washed in the blood
Gone are sinful ways, gone are dark filled days
Gone are sinful ways, gone are dark filled days
He raised me up He raised me up He raised me up
