There's Something About That Name
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus; There's just something about that name!
Master, Saviour, Jesus, Like the fragance after the rain;
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Let all heaven and earth proclaim;
Kings and kingdoms will all pass away,
But there's something about that name
mere mention of His name can calm the storm, heal the broken,
raise the dead.
At the name of Jesus, I've seen sin-hardened men melted, derelicts transformed,
the lights of hope put back into the eyes of a hopeless child.....
name of Jesus,
hatred and bitterness turn to love and forgiveness, augurments cease.
heard a mother softly breathe His name at the bedside of a child
from fever, and I've watched that little body grow quiet and the fevered brow cool.
sit beside a dying saint, her body racked with pain,
who in those final fleeting seconds summoned her last ounce of ebbing strength
to whisper the earth's sweetest name--Jesus, Jesus.....
have tried to destroy it, philosophies have tried to stamp it
Tyrants have tried to wash it from the face of the earth
with the very blood of those who claimed it. Yet it still stands.
there shall be the final day when every voice that has ever
uttered a sound...
every voice of Adam's race shall raise in one great mighty chorus to proclaim...
the name of Jesus... For in that day
"every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord!!!"
you see...it was not mere chance that caused the angel
one night long ago to say to a virgin maiden.
"His name shall be called Jesus."
You know, there is something about that name...
