The Name

Name so holy,

none could speak, nor hope

to venture near.

Astounding, that the awesome One

would choose to meet us

here. To grace

our most unworthy steps

with His,

so close to ours

and lift us

with a tender touch

by Hands

that made the stars.

Unworthy souls,

unworthy! We know it

to be true. He would not


and still

He came

for me and you,

and by the perfect blood

of Christ—He is

our Passover Lamb—

we dare

to breathe the Name

of Him

who is

the great “I Am”.
