The Story Behind the Song

As I sat with my guitar one day, I began just playing and singing to the Lord. Nothing written or any real “song”, just playing and singing whatever came into my heart to sing to Him. After a little while, I kept coming back to this same repeated section: “Jesus, You’re the Name above all names. Jesus, there is power in Your Name. Jesus, I’m a sinner but You love me anyway. There’s salvation found in no other name.” and it was so soothing and yet so powerfully edifying to my spirit. I started actively writing the verses and God gave me the vision of what Revelation describes with all His redeemed from every tribe, tongue, peoples, and nations worshipping Him. I don’t know many other languages, but I started singing Jesus in Hebrew and Spanish, and then began looking up how to say Jesus in other languages. That is where the bridge came from, Jesus’ Name in 6 different languages, with a choir of His people all praising His Name in their own tongue.

  • “Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11)
  • “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.” (John 10:28)
  • “After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” (Revelation 7:9-10)
