Above All (Crucified)

Jesus in the clouds - above all.     1  Above all powers, above all kings above all nature and all created things, above all wisdom and all the ways of man You were here before the world began above all kingdoms, above all thrones above all wonders the world has ever known above all wealth and treasures of the earth there's no way to measure what you're worth.  Chorus:  Crucified, laid behind a stone You lived to die, rejected and alone Like a rose, trampled on the ground You took the fall and thought of me Above all.. Like a rose Trampled on the ground You took the fall And thought of me Above.All
This contemporary-Christian-music style worship song was written by American worship leader and song-writer Paul Baloche (b 1962) and musician , singer and composer Lenny LeBlanc (b 1951).

It was originally published in 1991 by LenSongs Publishing and Integrity's Hosanna Music.

It has been recorded by a wide range of artists.   Michael W Smith's version is particularly well-known, and the song is often incorrectly attributed to him.   Today it is used in a wide range of churches, including more liturgical churches during Good Friday services.

Hymn books it has been published in include the 2008 edition of Kevin Mayhew's Anglican Hymns Old and New and Praise y Adoraci├│n: a bilingual hymnal : un himnario biling├╝e‎ published by Integrity's Hosanna Music in 2016.  It has been included in several song compilations, and a  4-part choral arrangement by has also been released by Hal Lenoard (link below).
