In His Name


Verse 1: The prophets saw in ages past
Light in the distant dawn
The King is bound in agony
Will rise to life again
And in his name a saving word
Release from every stain
And in the darkness we have heard
This is God's only plan
This is God's only plan

Verse 2: The Son of God now in the flesh
He seeks to save the lost
A King who left his majesty
Behind to set us free
And in his name a saving word
Release from every stain
And in the darkness we have heard
This is God's only plan

Chorus: O for a thousand tongues to sing
My great redeemer's praises
O for a thousand tongues to sing
My great redeemer's praises

Verse 3: His Spirit gives us words to speak,
'Jesus Christ is Lord'
And as he breaks the hardest heart
He's worshipped and adored
And in his name a saving word
Release from every stain
And in the darkness we have heard
This is God's only plan
