Generic is the word for those who economize today;
For the non-discriminating, I guess that itâ€™s okay.
Maybe in the supermarket just any brand works for you,
But when it comes to my salvation,
Generic just wonâ€™t do!
Give me that Name-brand salvation,
Itâ€™s Jesusâ€™ 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,
Iâ€™m not ashamed of Jesusâ€™ Name, itâ€™s branded on my soul!
The Word of God was sharp,
Just like a sword it pierced them through.
They cried out, â€œWe have slain the Christ,
Oh now what shall we do?â€
Then Peter standing with the twelve,
In one accord proclaimed:
â€œRepent of all your sins and be baptized in Jesusâ€™ Name!â€
This â€œNew Ageâ€ on the scene today, it really isnâ€™t new;
With altered states of consciousness,
And enlightenment for you.
These â€œspirit guidesâ€ and â€œchannelers,â€
Theyâ€™re really all the same:
Theyâ€™re demons from the pits of hell,
And they tremble at His Name!
Thereâ€™s a Name that chases devils
And causes them to flee;
Thereâ€™s a Name that gives deliverance,
And sets the captives free;
Thereâ€™s a Name that brings salvation,
The Bible makes it plain.
Just in case you havenâ€™t heard – Jesus is that Name!
