‘Let There Be Wonder”, the 2020 album by British singer-songwriter, Matt Redman is everything you would expect from this world-renowned worship leader whose songs are sung in churches everywhere. Each track brings you closer to God in its own way, however, there is one song that will really touch your heart, given the unsettled times we find ourselves in.
Jesus Your Name has the most appropriate lyrics for a world reeling in pandemic, protests and panic. Its message is clear. No matter how much shaking is going on, the God we serve is unshakeable and we must trust in Jesus, the Name above every other name.
“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under Heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:2)
Watch the video below and allow the Holy Spirit to challenge, comfort and inspire you through the beautiful words of this song as Matt sings his heart out.
“Oh Your name, is my first defence, and oh Your name, is my last amen. It carries me when I cannot stand. It reaches me when I reach the end. Jesus Your name, when the whole world shakes, Jesus Your name, I will ever praise. My battle cry every night and day, I’ll sing Your name over everything.”
Jesus Your Name
What powerful lyrics, especially if you feel shaken by Covid-19, the loss of a job, or worse still, a loved one. Our God is ever near and we can call upon Him at any time, especially when things seem hopeless.
As Hebrews 4:16 says: “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
Writing on his Facebook page about the new album, Matt Redman had this to say: “Where there is turbulence, let us sing truth. In these uncertain times I hope these new songs help you stand firm on the unshakeable, unchanging name of Jesus”.
