Holy is Your name

Psalm 103 begins with “All my inmost being, praise His holy name”. This is what God desires … for us to worship Him with all that we are! At the time this song was written, God was revealing afresh just how high and how deep and how wide His love is for you and me.

In the year that this song was written, I came to know Joe. He is a worship leader with a huge heart for God. As we spent time together and shared our passion for worship, Joe encouraged me to be more and more open to the Holy Spirit in leading worship.

As Joe led worship, he would lead, not from centre stage, but from the side as a way of saying “the worship leader is not the centre of attention … God is!” I’ve adopted the same position … I like to have the cross placed centre stage and to have the band and singers with me at the side … worship is about centering our focus on God.

How blessed we are … that He calls each of us His own! We are His favoured ones … sons and daughters whom He loves unreservedly. These lyrics express a sense of awe about God’s holiness and majesty … and that He alone is worthy of our praise and adoration!

Holy is Your name
Over all You reign
I will praise Your holy name

All the heavens and the earth
Will sing glory to Your name
All the mountains and the seas
Will proclaim Your majesty
Over all, our God, You reign
You reign

Bow before Your throne
Blessed to be Your own
I will worship You alone
