Name Lives On Lyrics
It stands to reason that a name is just a word.
It can be easily forgotten just as soon as it is heard.
But one name was spoken before the world's first day
And it will be here when everything that is has passed away.
Delivered from the lips of God
To Mary's ears on angel wings
The word that came to life for us.
The song that all creation sings.
The proudest nations of the earth have come and gone
But Jesus, the name lives on.
When I'm awakened by a terrifying dream
And desperation reaches up and clutches me
When I am so afraid that I don't know what to pray
I simply speak it and feel it and it chases fear away.
Eternal hope and promise, the ever-breaking dawn
When time itself is over, the name lives on.
Shakespeare wrote, "What's in a name ..." It's illogical that a simple word could hold any power. But there is something inexplicable and mysterious about the name of Jesus. It was an ordinary name of the day, but God Himself chose it. I don't know how or why, but I have felt it and I believe.
