10. The Names Lives On

Life Is A Church
by David Phelps


It stands to reason that a name is just a word.
It can be easily forgotten 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
Jesus, Jesus
The word that came to life for us
The song that all creation sings
Jesus, Jesus
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 even 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


By David Phelps/Kyle Matthews

Behind the Song:
"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." - David Phelps
