YOUR NAME


Those who know Your name trust in You, for You, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek You.  Psalm 9:10


Once barely whispered, these names of the Lord,
For holiness and reverence each meaning does afford.

Lord God Almighty, You are the El Shaddai,
You are Jehovah Jirah, The Lord who Will Provide.

You are The Lord who Is My Shepherd, Jehovah-Raah,
And The Lord who Is always There, Jehovah Shammah.

Jehovah Mekoddishkem, The Lord Who Sanctifies,
El Elyon, You are The God Most High.

El Olam, You are The Everlasting God.
Jealous in Your love for us, this names You, Qanna.

The Lord Is our blessed Peace, Jehovah Shalom,
The Lord of all the heavenly Hosts, Jehovah Sabaoth.

Jehovah Nissi, The Lord My Banner, raise it high,
Lord and Master over all of life, You are the Adonai.

The Lord He is Our Righteousness, Jehovah Tsidkenu,
Elohim and Yahweh, God and Lord of all we do.

He is Jehovah Rapha, The Lord That Heals His own,
With His Son He made this complete...
When He stepped down from the throne.


Many other names can describe our Sovereign King,
But truly, my dear friend, how wonderful are these!

And only if we named a few, our hearts should still be pleased,

To consider all He is for us and the promises we've received!
