What's In a Name

 
Would you like to leave the world behind?
To follow the Morning Star
Leave everything you own to find the day spring
Let the horn of your salvation sound
As you march upon the way
Beneath the son of righteousness to see the King of Kings

 

What's in a name the nature of the man?
His genealogy, or key to his birth?
What's in a name? The roots from whence he came
His power over heaven and the Earth

 

Would you care to enter through the door?
To taste the purest bread
And wash it down with crystal living water
Would you like to see the living stone?
Or touch the Lamb of God
Or Sunday dine with Jesus Christ our Passover

 

What's in a name the nature of the man?
His genealogy, or key to his birth?
What's in a name? The roots from whence he came
His power over heaven and the Earth

 

Did you ever meet the governor?
A carpenter was he
Who came to be our advocate in heaven
Our counselor, Rabboni
Redeemer, prince of peace
The one who is and is to come
The great "I am"
 
What's in a name the nature of the man?
His genealogy, or key to his birth?
What's in a name? The roots from whence he came
His power over heaven and the Earth
