Hands Lifted High was a dream-come-true recording for Dennis Jernigan. The songs for this collection were selected based upon their frequent use in the body of Christ according to CCLI (and based a little on the fact that DJ really liked leading worship with these songs!). Also included are several new Jernigan songs. This album is unique in the sense that each song – except for the 2 National Day of Prayer theme songs – is a duet between DJ and other Christian artists. This recording takes familiar Jernigan songs and reworks them with a modern flair. Produced by Kent Hopper, each song seems to fit the voice and character of each artist in a very satisfying way.
Standout songs include You Are My All In All (Natalie Grant), Who Can Satisfy My Soul (First Call), Great is the Lord Almighty (Charlie Hall), and On My Knees (Twila Paris).
Hidden Gems: I Bless You (Watermark), I Belong to Jesus (Alvin Slaughter), When the Night is Falling (Matthew Ward & Annie Herring of 2nd Chapter of Acts).
