The will of God is to be honored and praised. Matthew 7:24, “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock.
The heavens declare His glory!
In a loud voice the angels announce, “Behold the Lamb!”
What a story!
Power, praise, and honor are given by His name.
To lift Him up should be our aim.
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost-
The Creator, Savior, Living Spirit- giving life upmost;
To use His name in vain
After so much gain!
Your name, Oh Lord, your name-
To hear it used in vain should set your people aflame.
The sweet, sweet name of Jesus,
A man who died for us;
To use your name in vain
After your blood, your death, your pain;
The Son, Jesus, our Savior’s precious name-
Used in vain? Oh, what a shame!
The holy name of God-
Our Father, Maker of all, the Creator!
Who in all the world is greater?
To violate His name?
The One who sent His only Son, to die He came –
The Trinty, Three in One-
Father, Holy Ghost, and Son.
Why, oh why use their name in vain?
What good? What gain?
Rather, declare as do the angels-
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty”
Giver of grace, let us honor thee.Mary Crisp Jameson
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. Exodus 20:7
