That Name above All Names
1. We've often heard it said, ''There is something in a name.'' I think that's true. It is especially true with Jesus. The truth of the matter is that there are over 256 names given in the Bible for Jesus. Just to mention a few; He is called the Advocate, Amen, Branch, Bread of Life, Bridegroom, Bright and Morning Star, Chief Shepherd, Consolation of Israel, Counsellor, Day Spring, Day Star, Faithful and True, King of Glory, Lamb of God, Potentate, Prince of Peace, Rose of Sharon, Shiloh, Wonderful...and many others.

His Name above all names shall stand, Exalted more and more, At God the Father's own right hand, Where angel hosts adore.

His Name shall be the Counselor, The mighty Prince of Peace, Of all earth's kingdoms Conqueror, Whose reign shall never cease.
