Soul Crescendo

Soul Crescendo

by Carolyn Majoran

Soul Crescendo was birthed out of my love for God as well as music that lifts up His name. While my musical taste may be somewhat eclectic, I pray you will find the blogs shared here to be an encouragement to you. Let the simple truths of God’s greatness and the music that brings Him glory be a balm to your soul. To Him be the glory always.

  • In Jesus’ Name – Third Day

    The blind have sight
    The deaf now hear
    The lame will walk
    The lost drawn near
    And with new life
    The dead are raised
    All through the power
    In Jesus name

    The tired find rest
    The sick are healed
    The mysteries of our God revealed
    And now the truth
    Can be proclaimed
    All through the power
    In Jesus name

    Name above all names
    Savior and our Lord
    Every knee will bow
    And every tongue confess
    No other name is given
    By which we can be saved
    Let us find our life and love
    In Jesus name

    The thirsty filled
    The hungry fed
    And those who mourn
    Are comforted
    The chains are broken
    That have enslaved
    We’re offered freedom
    In Jesus name

    There is power
    There is hope
    There is love like you’ve never known
    There is forgiveness
    And healing from your pain
    All through the power
    In Jesus name

    Let us find our life and love
    In Jesus name

    John 20:30-31 – “Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”

    Acts 2:38 – “Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”

    There was a time in my youth when I was concerned with the social repercussions I would experience if I mentioned the name of Jesus. People knew I was a Christian but speaking about Jesus was not necessarily part of my daily talk. In my early young adult years, after completing a study on the names of God, I became even more concerned with uttering the name of Jesus for fear I would use His name incorrectly. As I’ve aged and studied and learned, I have come to a couple of conclusions: 1) I don’t really care what people think of me, and 2) There is complete and absolute power in the name of Jesus.

    In Jesus’ Name by Third Day, is a moving song about the power of Jesus name. They mention many instances that we can find in the Bible where amazing and miraculous things happened through Jesus’ name. Here are just a few examples and where you can read the whole story for yourself:

    1. The blind have sight – John 9
    2. The deaf now hear – Mark 7:31-37
    3. The lame will walk – Matthew 9:1-8
    4. The dead are raised – John 11:1-44
    5. The sick are healed – Matthew 4:23-24
    6. The hungry fed – Luke 9:12-17
    7. There is forgiveness – Acts 4:12

    Wow! Isn’t our God amazing?! The power in His name didn’t expire upon the completion of the New Testament. We have access to the same power today as that which occurred in Biblical times. Above all else, in Jesus’ name – and only Jesus’ name - can we be saved. He is the only One who can forgive our sins and make our hearts clean before the Father. I am grateful for each and every day that I’ve been given to proclaim His name as the only way to be saved!
