Your Name Is Beautiful – A Poem

My Monday post got me thinking about writing a poem about the many names of Jesus, because the blessings and promises each name holds is something I am very thankful for.

I know initially I was thinking my Thankful Thursday poem would always be an acrostic of a synonym of “thankful” but there just aren’t that many synonyms of that word. Plus God has been reminding me of the many things I am thankful for and different ways to lift up thankfulness each week.

Your Name Is Beautiful

Lamb of God
You came to take away the sin of the world
Simply beautiful

Prince of Peace
You came to leave peace in the hearts
Of those who believe
You are beautiful

Immanuel
You came to be God with us
So we will never be alone
Our life made more beautiful

Son of God
You reigned in heaven
Before coming to earth
You reign there still
Your throne so beautiful

Son of Man
You became one of us
So we would always know
That You understand how we feel
Your compassion is beautiful

Messiah
You were an answer to prophecy
Your story foretold
Israel waited for You to come
Still some didn’t believe
But faith in You is beautiful

Wonderful Counselor
Your wisdom You imparted
To the disciples eleven
And Paul, too
Then sent Your Holy Spirit
So we can see You are beautiful

Alpha and Omega
You created in the beginning
Before the world was known
You will be there in the end
Long after all is done
In between it all You are beautiful

Savior
You redeemed the souls of the lost
Were a willing sacrifice for our sins
Your love is so beautiful

 Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor
      and gave him the name above all other names,
 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
      in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
      to the glory of God the Father.
Philippians 2:9-11 (NLT)
