Marji Laine: Faith~Driven Fiction

. . . Authentic and Intense

The Name

Our choir is singing a song I fell in love with decades ago. The music and arrangement are beautiful, but the words. …

DSCN0039Did you  know that posting the lyrics to a song is a copyright infringement. Even a single phrase can cost hundreds of dollars in fees and restitution. So I’m not going to quote the song here.

I am however, going to quote the scripture that gives the foundation for the chorus. AND I’m going to include a  YouTube link of another choir singing this song. Nice job!

At the name of Jesus, every knee will bow in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:10-11

You know I read this verse and I picture my dog, Marcie. Stretching out like she does after a nap and shouting praise our great King.

Yeah, I have a pretty good imagination. But think about it. In Luke 19:40 Jesus said that if those praising keep quiet, the very stones will cry out. Frankly I don’t want any rocks crying out in my place. But I believe what Christ said. So how much of a stretch is it to believe that the animals would be included in every knee and every tongue. Not so much!

And this song brings all of that back. The excitement of that day when all humanity and the earth itself will lift praise to the only True and Righteous King.
