One clear example of this is the song "Lord, I lift your name on high", a 7-11 earwig sung in many, many churches.
Lord, I lift your name on high;
Lord, I love to sing your praises; I'm so glad You're in my life; I'm so glad You came to save us
You came from heaven to earth to show the way; From the earth to the cross my debt to pay; From the cross to the grave; From the grave to the sky; Lord, I lift your name on high
The main verse proves the point that at least in this highly popular song, a clear parallel to Philippians 2:5-12 is clearly intended. In Philippians, Paul describes the trajectory of Jesus as follows:
You came from heaven to earth to show the way
Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though He was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.
From the earth to the cross, my debt to pay
From the cross to the grave, from the grave to the sky
And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
Lord, I lift your name on high
Therefore God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Or, put another way:
It should also be understood that Jesus himself often referred to Himself as needing to be "lifted up" on the cross. In John 3:14, He says:
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up
In that instance, (recorded in Numbers 21) the Children of Israel had complained against God, and God sent snakes to bite and destroy them. They cry out, and Moses is instructed to fashion a bronze serpent, put it on a stick, and "lift it up" in the center of the camp. When people lift up their eyes to this serpent, they are healed. As one might expect, this became very, very popular. Lifting up was clearly an exaltation.
Interestingly, in the days of King Hezekiah, this same symbol, which had been lifted up, had itself become so exalted, that the King realized it was nothing more than an idol. As such, he had it torn down, in order to comply with the prohibition on idols.
