"The Name Lives On" as written by and David N./matthews Phelps....
Heavenly Father
We heard Your precious name

It stands to reason that a name is just a word
It can be easily forgotten as soon as it is heard
But one name was spoken before the world's first day
And it will be here when everything that is has passed away

Delivered from the lips of God
To Mary's ears on angel wings
Jesus, Jesus

The word that came to life for us
The song that all creation sings
Jesus, oh, Jesus

The proudest nations of the earth
Have come and gone
But Jesus, the name lives on

When I'm awakened by a terrifying dream
And desperation reaches up and clutches me
When I am so afraid that I don't even know what to pray
I simply speak it and I feel it and it chases fear away

Delivered from the lips of God
To Mary's ears on angel wings
Jesus, sweet Jesus

The word that came to life for us
The song that all creation sings
Jesus, oh, Jesus

The proudest nations of the earth
Have come and gone
But Jesus, the name lives on

Eternal hope and promise
The ever breaking dawn
When time itself is over
The name lives on

Delivered from the lips of God
To Mary's ears on angel wings
Jesus

The word that came to life for us
The song that all creation sings
Jesus, sweet Jesus

The proudest nations of the earth
Have come and gone
But Jesus, the name lives on

The proudest nations of the earth
Have come and gone
But Jesus, the name lives on
