1983 Name Above All Names

NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES
(Chuck Girard)

CHORUS:

IT’S THE NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES,
AND WE WILL DECLARE IT, WE WILL DECLARE IT
IT’S THE NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES,
AND WE WILL SHOUT IT TO A DYING WORLD.

Who will declare My name?
Who will shout My name in the middle of the nations
Who will take the shield of faith and the sword of My tongue,
And declare My name to a dying world?
You who have declared Me thus far,
Will walk in even greater power
Though the sands of time are running out,
My name will be declared in this final hour

I am Jehovah! I Am that I Am! And My trumpet will soon call ..out
I formed the worlds with a whisper
But I’m getting ready, I’m getting ready, I’m getting ready
To shout!

CHORUS

I will possess My people
I’ll take every inch that you’ll surrender to Me
For I’m building an army, and I’ve given it My Name
And my words in your mouth shall set the captives free.

I am Jehovah! I Am that I Am! And My trumpet will soon call out.
I formed the worlds with a whisper
But I’m getting ready, I’m getting ready, I’m getting ready
To shout!

KINGDOM COME
(Chuck Girard)

Kingdom come, My kingdom come,  the hour is drawing near
Let everyone obey these words, that has the ear to hear
Let the kingdom come from deep within and let Me rule your heart
And purge your life from everything that’s been keeping us apart

Let the earth hear My voice, the time to decide is here
To decide to walk as a soldier, to decide not to live in fear
The sheep shall divide from the goats,
The chaff shall be blown from the wheat
My people shall arise and become a strength,
They will never give place to defeat.
They will walk in unified faith,
In power that shall conquer all
They will lay their lives on the line
But they shall not faint and they shall not fall
My name shall be their name,
they will walk behind the veil
The world shall know them by their love,
And that love shall never fail.

Kingdom come, My kingdom come,  the hour is drawing near
Let everyone obey these words, that has the ear to hear

Run the race to win, cease to practice sin!
The crown of glory awaits you, so come on, get in, get in
The Word, My Word is the key,
Get it inside your heart
For the seed you plant…will become a tree
Bearing fruit that you soon will harvest.

(Chorus)

Oh spirit of man rise up! Let me live big inside
When you walk down the street,
The sick shall recover, and the dead shall rise!
Let no man think me weak, I am able to perform what I say
And all that I’ve declared shall come to pass in the last detail.
My will shall be done, on Earth through the sons of God.
Who walk in power and in faith and in love.
You are the sons of God!

Kingdom come, My kingdom come,  the hour is drawing near
Let everyone obey these words, that has the ear to hear
Let the kingdom come from deep within
and let Me rule your heart
And purge your life from everything
That’s been keeping us…apart

Extra lyrics given prophetically which were excluded from the recording due to format restraint:

You’re My own righteousness, and all that I possess
Has been given to you to equip you, to conquer, nothing less
Go forth be bold and be strong, don’t let anything distract
Be single minded and train your eye, to never once look back

WE ARE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD
(Chuck Girard)

We are the righteousness of God
‘Cause Jesus lives in us, ’cause Jesus lives in us
We are the righteousness of God
‘Cause Jesus lives in us, ’cause Jesus lives in us

I was a sinner saved by grace,
But I’m not a sinner anymore
I choose to live in righteousness and to practice sin no more
I did not say I would not fall, but when I do I’ll run to Him
For He is faithful and He’s just to forgive
You know He died for ALL our sins!

Chorus

And now our hearts do not condemn us,
And we can stand before the throne
And we have confidence before our God
‘Cause we no longer have to stand alone
Now God no longer sees our sin, He sees us fully reconciled
He sees us worthy to have fellowship with Him
He sees a brand new Creature, He sees us undefiled!

Chorus

And now we share in everything, the very nature of the Son
We are partakers in the fullness of our God
And we know that when we pray it will be done
We can live right now in Heaven’s realm,
We are no longer of the Earth
We are the children of the new creation
We’re joint-heirs with Jesus, partners in the second birth!

BLESSED BE THE NAME OF MY ROCK
(Chuck Girard)

Blessed be the name of my rock, who trains my hands for war
Who causes me to walk in His over-coming power forevermore
Blessed be the name of my rock,
Blessed be the name of my shield
Blessed be the Lamb who will open the scroll
And loose the seven seals

Proclaim these words to every land, let my people prepare for war
Wake up the mighty men, let all the men become mighty men of war
Come be a people great and strong,
The like of which has never been
Pick up the sword, pick up the shield, and become mighty men
Let the weak say “I am strong,” let the faint say” I am renewed”
Blow the trumpet in Zion, for I am coming soon

Chorus

The day of the Lord is at hand and his camp is very great
For strong is the One who performs His Word,
And by His Word, all the Earth shall shake
My people shall become a strength, like swift steeds they will run
They will leap the mountain like a flame of fire,
Like a chariot in the sun!

The army of the Lord is great! The army of the Lord of Lords!
The praises of their mouths will be a shield
And their  Words will be a sword!

Chorus

SOLDIERS OF THE LION
(Chuck Girard)

The field is white and frosty, the hour is drawing near
The battle lines are being drawn as the hour of dawn appears
In the stillness of the morning, the air is crisp and charged
With the tension of the battle, and the enemy at large
The battlefield is crowded, but the soldiers here are few
Yet the enemy is held at bay, no weapon can get through
Our tiny band of warriors continue in our stand
And as new soldiers join us, we prepare to take the land

We form a line of conquest, like fire our armor shines
With unshakable advancement, we move against the lines
Our swords are drawn and ready, and our numbers grow each day
We’ll soon be fully strengthened and we’ll blow the troops away!

Chorus

We’re the soldiers of the Lion, we’re the army of the light
The unstoppable battalion that drives away the night
And the Lion is our standard, and we know we cannot die
‘Cause the mighty name of Jesus is our sovereign battle Cry!

We move against the forces of the father of all lies
And the enemy is forced to flee before our very eyes
For no demon can resist us or begin to stand against
An army fully armored, no! Hell has no defense!
So look out powers of darkness, your hour has finally come
Our commander’s name is Jesus, and we’ve got you on the run
And we’ll charge you and we’ll route you
With the Spirit’s mighty sword
You’ve had this planet long enough,
You know you’re not our Lord!
So get back to outer darkness, and you leave the saints alone
Your weapons cannot prosper, we’re commissioned by the
Throne!

DON’T SHOOT THE WOUNDED
(Chuck Girard)

Don’t shoot the wounded, they need us more than ever
They need our love no matter what it is they’ve done
Sometimes we just condemn them,
And don’t take time to hear their story
Don’t shoot the wounded, someday you might be one

It’s easy to love the people who are standing hard and fast
Pressing on to meet that higher calling
But the ones who might be struggling, we tend to judge too harshly
And refuse to try and catch them when they’re falling
We put people into boxes and we draw our hard conclusions
And when they do the things we know they should not do
We sometimes write them off as hopeless
And we throw them to the dogs
Our compassion and forgiveness sometimes seem in short supply
So I say…

Chorus

We can love them and forgive them
When their sin does not exceed our own
For we too have been down bumpy roads before
But when they commit offenses outside the boundaries we have set
We judge them in a word and we turn them out,
And we close the door
Myself I’ve been forgiven for so many awful things
I’ve been cleansed and washed and bathed so many times
That when I see a brother who has fallen from the way
I just can’t find the license to convict him of his crimes
So I say…

Chorus

That doesn’t mean we turn our heads when we see a brother sin
And pretend that what he’s doing is all right
But we must help him see his error, we must lead him to repent
Cry with those who cry, but bring their deeds into the light
For it’s the sick that need the doctor,
and it’s the lame that need the crutch
It’s the prodigal who needs the loving hand
For a man who’s in despair, there should be
Kindness from his friends
‘Lest he should forsake the fear of almighty God
And turn away from God and man
So I say…

RAIN CAME DOWN
(Chuck Girard)

And the rain came down
And it fell upon the ground
And reminded me of all the words You said
Yes the rain came down, yes the rain came down
And the truth came down around me
Like the sky was rainin’ lead

Woke up this mornin’ to the sound of fallin’ rain
So many awful messages were rollin’ ’round my brain
I looked out my window and the sky was dark as night
Is it too late to change my ways and try and see the light
I looked out to the left of me the water risin’ high
And in the flash of lightnin’ that was lightin’ up the sky
I saw my neighbors wadin’ through the water in the dark
I know where they were goin’ they were headin’ for the ark

chorus

I caught them in a moment there was panic on my face
Others joined our group and made it clear this was a race
We had to try and find the ark and hope he¹d let us in
He who’d often warned us of the wages of our sin
We moved along in silence though our hearts were cryin’ out
Noah was no fool there was no longer any doubt
We rolled around the bend to where the ark had always stayed
Our tears turned into wailing as we watched it sail away.

chorus

Woke up this mornin’ when I heard a siren scream
The sound of morning traffic pulled me from my awful dream
My body bathed is sweat that matched the rain that fell outside
I realized my time had come I could no longer hide
All the early lessons I had learned at Sunday school
Slashed me to the heart and made me see I’d been a fool
I realized that all these years my eyes had been so blind
I grabbed the telephone…and got my preacher on the line.

WALL OF LOVE
(Chuck Girard)

I built a wall of love around you
That no man can take apart
I built a wall of love around you,
And it’s a wall around your  heart
I bought each brick with a drop of My blood
And the mortar was my pain
I built a wall of love around you, when I rose again

Trust in Me with all your heart,
And don’t you go by what you understand
When you think that your world is falling apart
Just remember that you’re in My hand
When you’ve seen as far as the eye can see
And it looks like the end to you
Just remember that My ways are not your ways
I’m the Lord and I’m able to deliver you

So look up, look up, for your redemption draws near to you
So look up, look up and the heavens will open up to you
So look up, and see the glory of your God
And that light will shine on you

And realize when you look in my eyes
How much …..I love you

WALK AS I WALK
(Chuck Girard)

Walk as I walk, think as I think, speak as I speak
You will grow as you do, and your faith will too
You’ll be lifted from the valley to the highest peak

If my words abide in you,…and you abide in Me
And you learn of My will and obey My commands
Then what you ask in my name will be
My words are truth and life,
And will teach you to know My ways
As you learn of Me you will more be free
And good success shall be yours all the rest of your days,
If you….

(CHORUS)

I will meet all your needs, by my riches here in glory
For I sent my only begotten Son
What you ask in His name, by Him it will be done
Don’t you stumble and stagger because of your fears
Keep your faith, keep your eyes upon Me
For My promise is true, it will be done for you
What you ask in My name, I will cause it to be….if you

(CHORUS)

THE POWER AND THE GLORY
(Chuck Girard)

The power and the glory of My kingdom is near
The power and the fullness of the Son will soon be here
He will come in regal splendor to the planet He will rule
Every evil has been crushed beneath His heel
The power of My Word will cause the Earth to know My will
And unify my people and My words will be fulfilled
That the body jointly fit will walk as one who is full grown
And they’ll speak the words of life with power
Backed by my own throne

Chorus

He’s the power and the glory,
He’s the King of kings the mighty risen Lord
He’s the power and the glory forevermore
He’s the power and the glory,
He’s the King of kings the mighty risen Lord
He’s the power and the glory forevermore

The glory of that moment when the Son of God appears
Will shrink the greatest deeds of man
Until they all but disappear

And the hearts of men shall fail them
For the fear of what it means
To be standing in the presence of the King of every king

And mankind will stand naked in the power of His might
As the Head comes with His body to eternally unite
Every knee on Earth shall bow and every
Tongue shall say the words
That Jesus Christ is Lord of everything
