THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT THAT NAME

(I post this video today in memory of Mrs. Carolyn Headrick who went home to be with the Lord on Friday, February 24th.  She will be greatly missed!)

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
There's just something about that name
Master, Savior, Jesus
Like the fragrance after the rain
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
Let all heaven and earth proclaim
Kings and kingdoms will all pass away
But there's just something about that name

Recitation:
Jesus, the mere mention of His Name can calm the storm, heal the broken, raise the dead. At the Name of Jesus, I've seen sin-hardened men melted, derelicts transformed, the lights of hope put back into the eyes of a hopeless child.... At the Name of Jesus, hatred and bitterness turned to love and forgiveness; arguments cease. I've heard a mother softly breathe His Name at the bedside of a child delirious from fever, and I've watched that little body grow quiet and the fevered brow cool. I've sat beside a dying saint, her body racked with pain, who in those final fleeting seconds summoned her last ounce of ebbing strength to whisper earth's sweetest Name-Jesus, Jesus.... Emperors have tried to destroy it; philosophies have tried to stamp it out. Tyrants have tried to wash it from the face of the earth with the very blood of those who claimed. Yet still it stands. And there shall be that final day when every voice that has ever uttered a sound--every voice of Adam's race shall raise in one great mighty chorus to proclaim the Name of Jesus, for in that day "Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord!!!" Ah- so you see- it was not mere chance that caused the angel one night long ago to say to a virgin maiden, "His Name shall be called Jesus."- Jesus-Jesus-Jesus. You know, there is something about that Name....
