Be Exalted, O God 
Psalm 57: 9-11; Psalm 97:9

Written by Brent Cambers in 1977, it's in the key of Bb with 4/4 time signature. I will post the arrangement that I have at the end of the post. Are you familiar with this beautiful hymn?

Verse:

        C         G
O Lord among the people

I couldn't possibly respond to each and everyone of your 
emails but I must say how thrilling it is to see so many 
of you write in about how much you are enjoying your church 
ministry. There's so many music resources online for you to 
find popular Christian Contemporary songs. I have a volume of 
charts myself, so that is what I try to share with you.
In response to the many requests I receive, "no", I do not mail 
sheet music to anyone in the U.S. or around the world.
 
You are welcome to do a search on my site and see if I've shared 
the chords to the songs you are looking for. Or send me an email, 
and I'll see if I have the chord chart in my library of worship 
song arrangements.
 
Best wishes to all the church musicians and blessings on your 
ministry. Back to the Scripture in song. Here's my arrangement 
that was given to me.
