A sharing of my heart and my home from a Christian perspective

Spiritual Sundays


Welcome to Spiritual Sundays which is a weekly event hosted by Charlotte and Ginger. Folks gather here to share and inspire with their stories of faith, hymns, and testimonials. Please click on the Spiritual Sundays button on my sidebar to go visit.

Today I would like to share a spiritual song written in 1998 by Lynn DeShazo and Gary Sadler.

BE UNTO YOUR NAME

We are a moment, You are forever

Lord of the ages, God before time.

We are a vapor, You are eternal

Love everlasting, reigning on high.

CHORUS

Holy, holy, Lord God Almighty

Worthy is the Lamb Who was slain.

Highest praises, honor, and glory,

Be unto Your name.

Be unto Your name.

We are the broken, you are the Healer

Jesus Redeemer, mighty to save.

You are the love song we'll sing forever

Bowing before You, blessing Your name.

When my hubby and I pastored our last church, this was one of the favourite songs of our flock. It is a simple song but it glorifies the Lord with its words and lovely melody. The words penned tell how insignificant we are and how great and mighty our God is! I'm sure most of you are familiar with it.

To all my friends in America, I wish you a safe and happy weekend. God bless each one of you.

Sandi,
I've not heard this one either, but I am familiar with DeShazo's music. She wrote "Ancient Words" in 2001...it is one of my very favorite pieces.


Blessings,
Jean

I don't know where I have heard this song, but as I was reading the words, the tune came to me so I sang it. It is a very lovely song.

Holy, holy, Lord God Almighty

Worthy is the Lamb Who was slain.
