about

In Old Testament times, when a person was taken into the fold of someones family and a blood covenant was made between them, it was customary for the person entering into the family to be given the name and protection of that family.
And so it is when we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, we take on the rights to be sons and daughters of God, through the covenant Jesus made for us as the Blood of the Lamb on Calvary. He has removed our sinful natures and given us His name in exchange - Healer, Advocate, Word of life....

This song reflects on the names we had and the names we now receive as Sons and Daughters of our Heavenly Father.

lyrics

WHAT’S YOUR NAME

By Bruce Norman.

Did you know, your name has changed
When you made a covenant
With Jesus as your Lord and saviour
Your name was sin, your name was fear
Weakness and poverty
Every evil you inherited – from Adam.

Jesus took those names from you
And gave his own in exchange
You have been given Jesus’ name
His authority - is now yours.

Jesus Christ, Almighty God
Wisdom and Deliverer
Word of Life, the Great I Am
Healer and the Lamb of God
Provider and our advocate
The Lion of the tribe of Judah.

Jesus gave His name to you
And took yours in exchange
Think about the name He’s given to you
His authority - is now yours.

Saviour and the Prince of Peace
He’s our Helper, Lamb of God
Lord of Hosts and Root of David.
Comforter, Almighty One
Healer and the Son of God
Author and the finisher - of our Faith.

Jesus gave His name to you
And took yours in exchange
You have been given Jesus’ name
His authority - is now yours.

Jesus Christ, Almighty God
Wisdom and Deliverer
Word of Life, the Great I Am.
Saviour and the Prince of Peace
He’s our Helper, Lamb of God
Lord of Hosts and Root of David.

Jesus gave His name to you
And took yours in exchange
You have been given Jesus’ name
His authority - is now yours.

Thank you Jesus for our name
You gave your own in exchange
I’m now Yours.
Thank you Jesus for our name
You gave your own in exchange
I’m now Yours.
