Rend Collective Shares the Story Behind the Song ‘Your Name Is Power’

“This song was born out of a need to remind ourselves of who is in control. As many of you may already know, Northern Ireland and the U.K. are going through a lot of political transitions that pose questions about the future that at times can feel overwhelming. But we know it’s not just the U.K. that is in a season of chaos and unknown— everywhere we turn seemingly there are issues. Some of them global, like the crisis in Sudan, or the protests in Hong Kong. Others are more private and no less overwhelming, loss of a family member, or job, seasons of doubt and confusion.

But here’s the thing friends, we have hope. There is an answer to the darkness, this IS hope among the chaos. His name is Jesus. His name scatters darkness, His name brings the dead back to life, and it’s at His name that every knee will bow and tongue confess Jesus is Lord.

There is power in the name of Jesus for his people to claim— that means you and I. Power to strengthen and encourage us. Power that only comes from Him. We hope this song encourages you to speak the power of His name over your circumstances WHATEVER they may be!”

“Your Name Is Power” Lyrics:
You’re the only answer to the darkness
You’re the only right among the wrong
You’re the only hope among the chaos
You are the voice that calls me on
Louder than every lie
Our sword in every fight
The truth will chase away the night

Your name is power over darkness
Freedom for the captives
Mercy for the broken and the hopeless
Your name is faithful in the battle
Glory in the struggle
Mighty it won’t let us down or fail us
Your name is power

I know It is written, hope is certain
I know that The Word will never fail
I know that in every situation
You speak the power to prevail
Louder than every lie
Our sword in every fight
The truth will chase away the night

When You speak You scatter darkness
Light arrives and heaven opens
Holy Spirit
Let us hear it
When You speak the church awakens
We believe the change is coming
Holy Spirit
Let us see it
