Immanuel - God with us...

The Name above All Names

He has a name above all names, His Father gave to Him,
A name that intercedes for us, brings hope when times are dim.

A name that heals the broken hearts, makes blinded eyes to see,
Restores the lame to walk again, and sets the captives free.

A name that shakes the prison bars, that we erect from sin,
Removes the chains of bondage there, and makes us free again.

The holy name of Jesus Christ, the Perfect Prince of Peace,
Mighty God, King of Kings, the name that brings release.

He came as Light to shine the way, and bring us back to God,
He did not come with judgment’s wrath, but with a Shepherd’s rod.

He is the one True Way to God, the Door we enter through,
The only name that saves a soul, Jesus-Faithful and True.

He came to pierce the darkest night, find those who lost their way,
And set their feet on Solid Rock, bring hope with each new day.

His name means more than we can know, it holds all power and might,
By it our ransom has been paid, exchanging wrong with right.

One day all flesh will bow their knee, proclaim Him Lord of Lords,
The precious name that paid the price, which no one could afford.

The Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and End,
Came down to earth to touch our hearts, relationships to mend.

The Great I AM has come to us, a babe so long ago,
To be the Way, the Truth, and Life, for those He came to know.

Immanuel – God’s with us now, the gift we can’t ignore,
Exalt His name, accept His love, it’s YOU He came here for.

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Philippians 2:9-11
