Power in the Name

by Paul Mayes Jamar

Philippians 2:9-11

Jesus is raised to the Supreme Majesty,
A rank very high God gave Him to be.

With honor, and power given to His name,
That every knee shall bow to it all the same.

All creatures in Heaven, and here below,
Everyone shall confess Jesus as Lord you know.

All to the glory of God, and at His great pleasure,
For His Son shall have power without measure,

Believe in Him, and He will help you,
Jesus will save you now, to become all new.

A new creation much better than the old,
Courageous, and resolute to share Jesus so bold.

At the mighty name of Jesus, demons cower,
For He is a fortress of love, and a strong tower.

Bow to Him and confess Him as Lord,
Before the Judgment Day, when He will destroy the sword.

And bring peace to Earth, and goodwill to all men,
Who have been given a new birth, and freedom of sin.
