Oh how wondrous is the name of the Lord
how we worship
His name is to be adored
God our maker
endured pain guilt and strife
so that we might
access our eternal life
Refrain: We offer sincere praise
we stand and bless your holy name
your blood has loosed all the chains
all men shall proclaim
there's power in your name
How we love you
your name is so sweet
your joy is complete
we love you
we reverence your face in this holy place
He who provides for my soul
my strong tower
Who hears and moves when we call
created us from the dust
the Lord is present with us
So sweet is the name of the Lord
Oh how wondrous is the name of the Lord.
