His Name Is Wonderful

    For to us a Child is born,  to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder,     and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of     Peace.   Isaiah 9:6

 

Audrey Mieir has been widely known for several decades as the composer and author of many fine gospel songs and choruses. “His Name Is Wonderful,” written in 1959, is one of her finest.

 

She tells in her biography how the inspiration of this song occurred while she watched the annual Christmas program given at her Bethel Union Church in Duarte, California.

 

After the usual procession of angels, shepherd, Mary and Joseph, the singing of “sleep in heavenly peace,” the pastor of the church suddenly exclaimed – “His Name Is Wonderful!”

 

Audrey Mieir tells that she quickly grabbed her Bible, searched the concordance for names given to Jesus in the Scriptures, and soon composed this song, which has since been sung around the world:

 

HIS NAME IS WONDERFUL,
HIS NAME IS WONDERFUL,
HIS NAME IS WONDERFUL,
Jesus, my Lord.

 

He is the mighty King,
Master of ev'rything,
HIS NAME IS WONDERFUL,
Jesus, my Lord.

 

He's the Great Shepherd,
The Rock of all Ages,
Almighty God is He.

 

Bow down before Him,
Love and adore Him,
HIS NAME IS WONDERFUL,
Jesus, my Lord.

 

Wise men bowed down before Him in Bethlehem. Because His Name is Wonderful, our only proper response to Him this Christmas and always is that we must do the same.

 

Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
