The Name Above All Names

Ps. 34:3 NIV Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together.

Phil. 2:9 NIV Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.

Jer. 10:6 NIV No one is like you, Lord;
    you are great,
    and your name is mighty in power.

Today I want you take six minutes to listen to a song that will appeal to everyone reading this regardless of whether you like traditional or contemporary worship. I thought of this song in the early hours of Sunday and am glad it was available to add here. This features the music of Chuck Girard, lead singer of Love Song, one of the groups which launched contemporary Christian music in the 1970s. He then went on to worship leading and writing powerful worship songs like this one.

IT’S THE NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES,
AND WE WILL DECLARE IT, WE WILL DECLARE IT
IT’S THE NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES,
AND WE WILL SHOUT IT TO A DYING WORLD.

Who will declare My name?
Who will shout My name in the middle of the nations
Who will take the shield of faith and the sword of My tongue,
And declare My name to a dying world?
You who have declared Me thus far,
Will walk in even greater power
Though the sands of time are running out,
My name will be declared in this final hour

I am Jehovah! I Am that I Am! And My trumpet will soon call ..out
I formed the worlds with a whisper
But I’m getting ready, I’m getting ready, I’m getting ready
To shout!

CHORUS

I will possess My people
I’ll take every inch that you’ll surrender to Me
For I’m building an army, and I’ve given it My Name
And my words in your mouth shall set the captives free.

I am Jehovah! I Am that I Am! And My trumpet will soon call out.
I formed the worlds with a whisper
But I’m getting ready, I’m getting ready, I’m getting ready
To shout!
