Matt Redman: His Name Shall Be

A song from Matt Redman’s Christmas album, These Christian Lights.  The song is called His Name Shall Be.  It’s great.  The verses are taken from an old hymn ‘Now Let Us Sing The Angels’ Song’.

The story behind the song:

The words:

O can you hear the angels song
That rang so sweet and clear,
When heaven’s light and music fell
And mercy found us here.
Glory in the highest
And on the earth be peace
Glory to God the angels sing.

He came to tell the Father’s love,
His goodness and His grace;
To show the brightness of His smile,
The glory of His face;
So glory in the highest
And on the earth be peace
Glory to God your children sing.

His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor.
Mighty God, Everlasting Father
Prince of Peace.
For all eternity, o
His name shall be.  

He came to lift the weary ones
Give peace and perfect rest;
To take away our burdens and
To give a glorious gift
So glory in the highest
And on the earth be peace
Glory to God the world will sing.

One name above all others
One name that came to save us
O sing, His name is
His name is Jesus

Verses adapted from Frances Havergal hymn “Now Let Us Sing The Angels’ Song”
