“Be Unto Your Name” by Robin Mark

After this I heard what seemed to be the loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, crying out, “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God” –Revelation 19:1

Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out,
“Hallelujah!
For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and exult
and give him the glory,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
and his Bride has made herself ready;
it was granted her to clothe herself
with fine linen, bright and pure” —
for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints. –Revelation 19:6-8

I love the worship at Pillar Baptist Church. The Christ-centered, cross-centered songs preach the Gospel truths about God’s redemption and salvation and prepare our hearts for the hearing of God’s Word. Plus the joining of one voice in corporate worship is the beauty of the Gospel in the church. Pastor Danny preached on Revelation 19:1-10 today and the importance of corporate worship, which is a reflection of what happens in heaven when we will sing praises to God for eternity. We have sung this song before and I heard it’s not a new one, but it stood out to me today. I was hooked by the contrast between us and God – “We are a moment, You are forever” and “We are a vapor, You are eternal.” Hallelujah, praise the Lord! Jesus, the Lamb who was slain for us and the Redeemer who saves us, is worthy of the highest praise, honor, and glory. In this past week, I have been finding an eternal perspective and peace in knowing that God is sovereign and good no matter what He brings me through in this short life. All I need is You, Lord.

We are a moment, You are forever
Lord of the Ages, God before time
We are a vapor, You are eternal
Love everlasting, reigning on high

CHORUS:
Holy, holy, Lord God Almighty
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Highest praises, honor and glory
Be unto Your name, be unto Your name

We are the broken, You are the healer
Jesus, Redeemer, Mighty to save
You are the love song we’ll sing forever
Bowing before You, blessing Your name
