For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Sunday Hymn

How Awesome is Your Name

by  Joe Tyrpak (Church Works Media)

1—Psalm 8:1-2; 1 Corinthians 1:26–29
O LORD, our Lord, how awesome is Your name in all the earth.
The skies display Your majesty; Your fame from them pours forth.
You choose the weak and foolish things to shame the strong and wise,
And silence boasting enemies with nursing babies’ cries.

2—Psalm 8:3–4
When I behold the midnight sky—the work Your fingers made—
The moon holds fast my marv’ling eyes; the stars arrest my gaze.
I question why You care for man; I cannot comprehend
Why You who formed this vast expanse would humbly condescend.

3—Psalm 8:5–8
Yet man is crowned with majesty—with lofty honor graced.
You stationed him just underneath the high angelic race.
Appointed by Your sovereign hand, he reigns as nature’s prince
O’er every beast that roams the land or in the ocean swims.

4—Hebrews 2:5–9; Matthew 21:15–16
Our Lord and Maker, Jesus Christ, took on Him human flesh;
Below the angels for a time, in lowliness He dressed.
Small children hailed Messiah’s fame: “Hosanna!” loud they cried;
While all His foes replied, inflamed, “Let Him be crucified!”

5—Ephesians 1:22; Philippians 2:9–11; Psalm 8:9
But Christ arose as King of kings, the sovereign Lord of all!
God placed all things beneath His feet; each knee to Him will fall.
We praise the name of Jesus Christ, the name of highest worth:
O LORD, our Lord, how awesome is Your name in all the earth!
