His Name Is Wonderful
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.
On Christmas day in 1959, Audrey Mae Mieir was inspired to write this hymn after hearing her pastor open his Bible and read, "His name shall be called Wonderful" at the beginning of the service. She wrote the first part in her Bible that morning during church and finished after reading the names of Christ. This song has never been associated with Christmas even though it was inspired by a very traditional Christmas text. However, it is still a favorite today.
