-Roy Lessin, Jesus Name Above All Names
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful. -Isaiah 9:6 KJV
Wonderful name He bears,
Wonderful crown He wears,
Wonderful grace for me,
Wonderful love of my wonderful Lord.
- Alfred H. Ackley
What Jesus does flows out of who He is. He cannot deny Himself. Every name He bears is an expression of His person. Because He is wonderful, wonderful things happen to those who put their trust in Him.
Jesus will keep everyone who trusts in Him at the edge of their seat, with mouths wide open in utter astonishment as He daily performs His wondrous works—wonders of mercy, grace, power, goodness, and love. His wonders cannot be duplicated because they go beyond man's capabilities, accomplishing what man is unable to accomplish, achieving what man is unable to achieve. Jesus Christ is wondrously, wonderfully, wonderful!
There is never a day so dreary,
There is never a night so long,
But the soul that is trusting in Jesus
Will somewhere find a song.
Wonderful, wonderful Jesus,
In the heart He implanteth a son;
A song of deliverance, of courage, of strength,
In the heart He implanteth a song.
-Anna B. Russell
