VS:1 IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD,
AND THE WORD BECAME FLESH, A HE DWELT
AMONG US, AND HIS NAME IS JESUS. SON
OF GOD, AND SON OF MAN, PART OF GOD'S
ETERNAL PLAN,BORN OF A VIRGIN, HE WAS
REVEALED TO US, AND HIS NAME IS JESUS.

CHORUS: AS WE CRY, HOLY IS THE LAMB,
AND WE SING, TO THE GREAT I AM.
WORTHY OF GLORY, BLESSED BE THE NAME,
BLESSED BE THE NAME, BLESSED BE THE
NAME OF THE LORD.

OF PEACE IS HE. BRIGHT AND MORNING
STAR, HE'LL MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE,
AND HE KNOWS OUR EVERY NEED.

REPEAT CHORUS:

TAG: BLESSED BE THE NAME, JESUS IS
HIS NAME, BLESSED BE THE NAME OF OUR
LORD.
