Generic is the word for those who economize today;
For the non-discriminating, I guess that it’s okay.
Maybe in the supermarket just any brand works for you,
But when it comes to my salvation,
Generic just won’t do!
Give me that Name-brand salvation,
It’s Jesus’ Name for me!
The Name above all others is the Name that set me free.
His Name is my strong tower,
And I want the world to know,
I’m not ashamed of Jesus’ Name, it’s branded on my soul!
The Word of God was sharp,
Just like a sword it pierced them through.
They cried out, “We have slain the Christ,
Oh now what shall we do?”
Then Peter standing with the twelve,
In one accord proclaimed:
“Repent of all your sins and be baptized in Jesus’ Name!”
This “New Age” on the scene today, it really isn’t new;
With altered states of consciousness,
And enlightenment for you.
These “spirit guides” and “channelers,”
They’re really all the same:
They’re demons from the pits of hell,
And they tremble at His Name!
There’s a Name that chases devils
And causes them to flee;
There’s a Name that gives deliverance,
And sets the captives free;
There’s a Name that brings salvation,
The Bible makes it plain.
Just in case you haven’t heard – Jesus is that Name!
