"What A Beautiful Name" by Hillsong Worship

I love the song What a Beautiful Name by Hillsong.

The choruses are so simple and yet they describe the Name above all Names, Beautiful, Wonderful and Powerful. The whole song gives us such a magnificent picture of who Jesus is. 

Phillipians 2 9-11

‘Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above all other names, so that at the name if Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and earth and under the earth, and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord’

Romans 8 38-39

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

What gets me the most is the bridge. The opening line of it “death could not hold You” is such a powerful statement. To us death is so final and permanent, but Jesus conquered death and rose again and He is seated in Heaven and rejoices over you! The whole thing is pure gold, declaring the goodness of our Father.

I pray that as you worship to this you would meditate on what His name means to you and how awesome He is. And when the bridge comes sing it as loud as you can because He is our King and He is so worthy!!
