Wednesday Is for Worship: “Your Great Name”

Wednesday-Is-for-Worship

What an awesome day it is to praise the Lord!  May we do it until our dying breath!!

Today’s worship song is one of the most moving songs I’ve heard in a while.  Not only is it beautifully orchestrated, it also is full of biblical truth.  I’m talking about “Your Great Name.”

Written in 2008 by Krissy Nordhoff & Michael Neale and published through Intergrity’s Praise! Music, the song captures the amazing power found in the name of Jesus.  The lost are saved, the condemned are forgiven, fear is erased, and the devil flees.  What’s more, the weak are made strong, the hungry are fed, the orphan finds rest, the sick are healed, and the dead are raised.  Yeah, that’s POWER!!  All of this and more is found in Jesus Christ.

In 2010, Natalie Grant released this song on her album “Love Revolution” and does the song great justice.  Sing along with her version below.

May you worship God today in the great name of Jesus!

Verse 1
Lost are saved; find their way; at the sound of your great name
All condemned; feel no shame, at the sound of your great name
Every fear; has no place; at the sound of your great name
The enemy; he has to leave; at the sound of your great name

Chorus
Jesus, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain for us, Son of God and Man
You are high and lifted up; that all the world will praise your great name

Verse 2
All the weak; find their strength; at the sound of your great name
Hungry souls; receive grace; at the sound of your great name
The fatherless; they find their rest; at the sound of your great name
Sick are healed; and the dead are raised; at the sound of your great name

Bridge
Redeemer, My Healer, Almighty
My Savior, Defender, You are My King
