Lent: Day 35
Jesus, Only Jesus
Who has the power to raise the dead? Who can save us from our sin? He is our hope, our righteousness Jesus, only Jesus
Who can make the blind to see? Who holds the keys that set us free? He paid it all to bring us peace Jesus, only Jesus
Holy, King almighty Lord Saints and angels all adore I join with them and bow before Jesus, only Jesus
Who can command the highest praise? Who has the name above all names? You stand alone, I stand amazed Jesus, only Jesus
You will command the highest praise! Yours is the name above all names! You stand alone, I stand amazed Jesus, only Jesus! Jesus, only Jesus!
Philippians 2:9-11 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.
Name above all names. Every great human being you can think of - Mother Theresa, Mandela, Gandhi, Lincoln, Tebow(!) - all pale in comparison to Jesus. They are not even close. The sum greatness of every single human name COMBINED is just a shadow of the greatness of HIs name. His name can save. His name can heal. His name destroys darkness. His name will cause all creation to worship forever. Jesus - name above all names.
JESUS how I love to say Your name! May it always be on my lips as I live to know You and glorify You here!
