The Name

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.”
Philippians 2:9-11 NIV
There is one Name exalted
Far above all other names,
Belonging to the One who always
Was and is the same.
 
And at that Name, all earth and Heaven
One day will bow down,
To give the glory due the One
Who’s wearing Heaven’s crown.
 
That Name is JESUS, Lord of Lords
And righteous King of Kings.
And one day every tongue will speak
What angel choirs sing:
 
That Jesus Christ is Lord, and worthy
Of our highest praise,
Which brings His holy Father glory,
Now and for always.
