Lyrics

Yours will be
The only name that matters to me
The only one whose favor I seek
The only name that matters to me

Yours will be
The friendship and affection I need
To feel my Father smiling on me
The only name that matters to me

And Yours is the name, the name that has saved me
Mercy and grace, the power that forgave me and Your love
Is all I’ve ever needed

Yours will be
The only name that matters to me
The only one whose favor I seek
The only name that matters to me

Yours is the name the name that has saved me
Your Mercy and grace, the power that forgave me and Your love
Is all I’ve ever needed

When I wake up in the Land of Glory
With the saints I will tell my story
There will be one name that I proclaim

When I wake up in the Land of Glory
With the saints I will tell my story
There will be one name that I proclaim

Hey
La-la, la-la, la-la, la-la
La-la, la-la, la-la, la-la
La-la, la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la

Jesus, Jesus
Jesus, just that name
Jesus, Jesus
Jesus, just that name

When I wake up in the Land of Glory
With the saints I will tell my story
There will be one name that I proclaim

When I wake up in the Land of Glory
With the saints I will tell my story
There will be one name that I proclaim

Hey
La-la, la-la, la-la, la-la
La-la, la-la, la-la, la-la
La-la, la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la

Jesus, when I wake up in the Land of Glory
With the saints I will tell my story
There will be one name that I proclaim (la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la)
La-la, la-la, la-la, la-la
La-la, la-la, la-la, la-la
La-la, la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la

About This Song

"The older I get the songs I heard growing up mean more and more to me. That Bill Gaither song, "There's something about that Name": "Kings and Kingdoms will all pass away, but there's something about that name, Jesus." Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord. We've seen that in the past year. Sickness has to bow at the name of Jesus. Bondage of any kind is broken at the name of Jesus. Not only at His name, but also His name on the lips of someone who is walking in the identity that His name provides us.

It's one thing to be words. Words don't mean anything unless it's backed up by life. That's the same thing with faith. Faith without works is dead. We're not saying you have to work to show that you have faith, but faith produces a work. We're just on the cusp of this. We feel like babes in the woods, but I feel like when we get a hold of this, the atmosphere shakes. When you really believe that, it begins to change the way that you act. It changes everything. It changes what's important to you. It's all wrapped up in the name and person of Jesus."
