The name of Jesus is supreme. The name of Jesus is the name above all names. This is the name exalt high above all others and so in times of prayer when we literarily want to exalt him with a song, there are more than 10 options. Some we already know and others we are about to discover and love and have on constant repeat on our playlist.
The Name of Jesus by Sinach
Released on the 2nd of November 2014 by Osinachi Joseph (nee Kalu), this song transcends time. It is evergreen. The high point of the song however is the bridge when she sang “Every other god they are deader than dead; Jesus died and rose again…”
What A Beautiful Name by Laurie Daigle
“You were the Word at the beginning, one with God the Lord Most High.” This song just gets you from the very first note. Although originally written and sung by Hillsong Worship, Laurie Diegles cover is the one we are examining on this list. That simple acoustic guitar cover just gave a whole new definition to the song.
The Name of Jesus by Dele Bangboye
This 1990s classic had to be added to this list. If you grew up in an African Christian home either in Africa or the diaspora then you most likely know this song. “The name, the name of Jesus I greater and higher than all names. It is not an ordinary name, it’s a name that full of power and grace.” As simple as that body of chorus is. It is embedded in power.
Jesus by Shirley Caesar
“… how I love calling Your name. Jesus… every day Your name is the same.” Mama Shirley Caeser simply made calling the name of Jesus very enjoyable in this all-time classic. Since the 28th of April 1992 when it was released, it still finds its way to our repertoire most especially when we are lost in worship declaring our love for God.
Jesus, there is something about your name By Bill and Gloria Gaither
The year 1992 seems to be the year for the declaration of the name of God. This song was released that year in the album – A Praise Gathering. The same album that had the chat topping gospel song “He touched me; and oh the joy that fills my souls..” we Salute the grace of God in the life of Bill and Gloria Gaither
Jesus by Chris Tomlin
The American contemporary Christian music artist, worship leader, and songwriter from Grand Saline, Texas, the United States, who has also sold about 7 million records “Christopher Tomlin” brings to us a song of praise worship, this song is titled “JESUS”.
Wonderful Name by Christy Nockels
Released in the year 2015 in the album ”Let it be Jesus”, this song reminds us of all the wonderful things in the name of Jesus and what great attribute that name has. The renowned contemporary Christian music minister and song-writer who has won lots of music awards Christy Nockels is one of the lead members of the band Watermark, along with her husband, Nathan Nockels.
Break Every Chain by Tasha Cobbs Leonard
Here hardly is any song that balances worship and deliverance using the name of Jesus as a central theme so perfectly as Tasha did. This 2018 hit fro the album Heart. Passion. Pursuit took us by surprise. It is safe to say we didn’t see this one come and have not recovered still.
