God…highly exalted Him, and [gave] Him a name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in Heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.@Philippians 2:9–10

Jesus, Your Name is far above every name, I know,
For You stand behind Your awesome name alone.
Jesus, You are the Great I AM from before all creation,
For when God spoke, You were the Word of God Almighty,
You were the Word who was with God and He alone was God,
And only You created all and all with such great beauty.

Refrain

Jesus, Your Name alone means more to me;
Jesus, Your Name is holy.
Your precious blood covers all our sin,
Through You alone, I’ve been made clean again.

You were the Great I AM that spoke to Moses that day,
You sat on God’s throne, lofty, exalted on high,
You also dwelt among us showing us the only narrow way,
Wonderful Counselor, Almighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace, our refuge, our strength,
Son of God, You love us, and are with us,
And make us holy only unto You.

Refrain

Jesus, our Rock and Fortress when all around us fails;
You’re the true light that shines in this dark world of woe.
As our Great Shepherd, full of grace,
Your glory and life leads us on,
You guide us in the way we should go,
And as our Bread of Life, we live on Your every word;
Your love, truth, and life our souls You restore
As we make You our God, our only Lord.

Refrain

Jesus, our Paschal Lamb of God, take away our sin,
By Your own death redeem us to God so we’ll live,
Eternal life in Your presence forever above.
You are our vine, as branches we reach out to You.
You have overcome the world,
You’re our majestic coming King,
Our sole hope of glory are You!
O come, Lord Jesus, come, and take us Home with You!

Refrain
