Your Name Is Beautiful - Song History

I was once challenged by someone who really questioned the need for outward expression of worship. This person asked me, "€œWhat if I were physically unable to express my worship? What if I could not lift my hands or dance before Him? How can I expect someone to do that?"€ My response? If we are talking about me, I am physically able to do so, so I WILL praise Him with my physical being, but let'€™s say I was unable to move my limbs. What would I do then? The answer would still be the same. I woul€™d still praise Him for all He has done for me! I would blink my eyes in worship! I would dance in my mind! I would breathe as loudly as I could breathe to express in one way or another what Jesus Christ means to me!

When we think about redemption and salvation, we need to see ourselves as being rendered able to move in our spirits, crippled and incapacitated by sin. When we are washed clean and redeemed of that sin, we are healed of our weakness. Abiding in Jesus is learning to walk with Him. Worship is really like our spiritual therapy! Because I see how desperate my life was without Him, I would do anything He asked me to do in worship. I would be glad to do it. Because of that gratefulness in my life, I will use whatever gifting He has given me, whatever means I have available to give Him the glory He deserves. This song came as a result of these types of questions in my life. If I could not praise Him physically, I would find a way Think about it. What would you do?

As soon as He was approaching, near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the miracles which they had seen, shouting: "BLESSED IS THE KING WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD; Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!" Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Him, "Teacher, rebuke Your disciples." But Jesus answered, "I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out!€

Luke19:37-40 NASB

Verse 1

If there never was a song
For my feeble tongue to raise.
If there never more was music
I would find a way to praise Your name
Your beautiful name.

If there never was a body
Or a fleshly hand to raise
If I could not dance before You
I would find a way to praise Your name
Your beautiful name

With ev'ry fiber of my being
And ev'ry breath within my soul.
Ev'ry thought I'd cast before You
Just to somehow let You know
I'd find a way to praiseYour name.

Chorus

Your name is Beautiful.
Your name is Peace.
Your name is Mighty God.
Your name is Prince of Peace

Your name is Wonderful.
Your name is Holy One.
Your name is Jesus. Jesus,
Your name is beautiful to me.

With ev'ry fiber of my being
And ev'ry breath within my soul.  
Ev'€™ry thought I'd cast before
You Just to somehow let You know
I'd find a way to praiseYour name.

Verse 2

If I never knew Your healing
If my days were filled with pain,
Just the fact that You are near me
Gives me strength to still proclaim Your name,
Your beautiful name.

If I lost all my possessions
Or the fam'ly I hold dear,
I would gladly give my life up
If it meant the world would hearYour name,
Your beautiful name

With ev'ry fiber of my being
And ev'ry breath within my soul.
Ev'€™ry thought I'd cast before
You Just to somehow let You know
I'd find a way to praiseYour name.

Chorus

Your name is Beautiful
Your name is Peace
Your name is Mighty God
Your name is Prince of Peace

Your name is Wonderful
Your name is Holy One.
Your name is Jesus. Jesus
Your name is beautiful to me.

With ev'ry fiber of my being
And ev'ry breath within my soul.
Ev'€™ry thought I'd cast before
You Just to somehow let You know
I'd find a way to praise Your name

Chorus

Your name is Beautiful
Your name is Peace
Your name is Mighty God.
Your name is Prince of Peace

Your name is Wonderful
Your name is Holy One.
Your name is JesusJesus,
Your name is beautiful to me
