Ashmont Hill, “Love Lifted Me”

Contemporary Christian vocal group Ashmont Hill has released Love Lifted Me as its newest single. Released to iTunes November 27, Love Lifted Me is the group’s follow-up to Show My Love and Your Masterpiece, the singles off the group’s Axiom Records sophomore album of the latter title.

Group members April Joy Mtyora, Phil Thompson, Wil Bullock, and Deborah Bullock are known for their tight harmonies and worshipful lyrics, and Love Lifted Me does not disappoint. Phil Thompson leads on Love Lifted Me, which thrills me, because the man is a brilliant songwriter and vocalist whose rich baritone has often had to take a backseat to the incredible vocals of his groupmates.

Despite the song’s apparent age – the video to which I’ve linked is taken from a worship concert possibly held in 2010 – it is still fresh and as anointed as it was when performed in the past. With lyrics that effortlessly transition from a personal awareness of a love greater than any mankind has previously known, to vertical praise of a God whose love has saved us all, Love Lifted Me is that rare single that bridges the gap between Contemporary Christian gospel-pop and church-bound worship. Released to an international audience, Love Lifted Me stands to become the latest in the list of radio singles earning Ashmont Hill critical and commercial acclaim. From the heart of Boston come four clearly gifted worshipers whose growing body of quality work should – SHOULD! – earn them a spot in CCM’s pantheon of premier vocal groups.

LOVE LIFTED ME Lyrics
Ashmont Hill

Glory, glory to God in the highest
Glory, glory to God
When nothing else could help
You came and rescued me

Your love lifted me
Your love lifted me
Your love lifted me
I am free to sing of Your love

Hallelujah
It’s Your love
It’s Your love, yeah

Glory, glory to God in the highest
Glory, glory to God
When nothing else could help
You came and rescued me

Your love lifted me
Your love lifted me
(It’s your love) Your love lifted me
I am free to sing of Your love
(It’s your love) Your love lifted me
(It’s your love) Your love lifted me
(It’s your love) Your love lifted me
I am free to sing of Your love

Oh
Hallelujah (hallelujah)
It’s Your love, it’s Your love, yeah

Higher, higher, higher than heavens
Deeper, deeper, deeper than oceans
Greater, greater, greater than mountains
Your love

Higher, higher, higher than heaven
Deeper, deeper, deeper than oceans
Greater, greater, greater than mountains
Your love, Your love, Your love is

Higher, higher, higher than heavens
Deeper, deeper, deeper than oceans
Greater, greater, greater than mountains
Your love, Your love, Your love is higher

Higher, higher, higher than heavens (Oh, Your love is)
Deeper, deeper, deeper than oceans
(It’s) Greater, greater, greater than mountains
Your love

Your love lifted me
Your love lifted me
Your love lifted me
I am free to sing of Your love
