God's holy name
Father, I would like to know -
where did all the good men go,
the ones who held You in revere,
the ones who spoke Your name with fear?
I hear men speaking all around,
but how I hate that dreadful sound,
for they use Your Godly name in vain,
and yet they seem to feel no shame.
Jesus is another name they use
in their rhetorical abuse,
and yet they seem oblivious
of how powerful that name is.
Sickness can not hold its ground
before the power of that sound,
demons too, pick up and flee
before the name that sets man free.
Not even death can hold its own
but is recorded to have flown
when Jesus’ name was spoken there
where all seemed lost and in despair.
My God! My God! how can it be
that man has no respect for Thee?
Our egos are disproportionate
to the small space in which we sit.
Allow me then to lift You high,
to sing Your praises to the sky,
and when no worshipers are found,
let Your name from me resound!
