Hillsong Take Home Grammys – What A Beautiful Name It Is (The Name Of Jesus Christ)

The Story Behind the Song:

“What hides in the name of Jesus?

The name of Jesus encompasses more than we can hope or imagine—more beauty, more wonder, more power.

Most of the song “What A Beautiful Name” was penned in a glorified cubicle in the suburbs of Sydney over a few days in December 2015. From there we spent months crafting the lyrics to riff on our core scriptures — Hebrews 1:1-4 and Colossians 1:15-20, 26-27 — yet be simple enough to make sense on a first reading. Hebrews 1:1-4 expresses with clarity and conciseness the supremacy of Jesus Christ — the radiance of God’s glory, the exact expression of His being, the creative conduit of His power. Jesus is God’s Word: powerful, authoritative and utterly supreme. He is the wonder of salvation, who reconciled us to God.

In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son” (Hebrews 1:1-2, NIV)

To know God and to worship Him (“to enjoy Him forever”) is the most fundamental reason for our existence. As Jesus reveals the great mysteries of God, we come to know more of who God is, glimpsing new facets of His beauty, wonder and power.

Beauty” evokes the tenderness of His love and the sweetness of His presence. “Wonder” speaks to our gratitude for salvation, awe at the lengths of His sacrifice. “Power” affirms His supremacy and Sovereignty—an exhortation to remember our access to the power of God in every situation, as we call upon and declare the Name of Jesus.

What a beautiful Name it is
What a wonderful Name it is
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

Jesus has the Name above all others. Anything that we can name – from our greatest triumphs to our greatest challenges—comes under the authority of His Name. This song confesses that no greater beauty or source of wonder exists outside of Jesus, “the radiance of God’s glory” (Hebrews 1:3). The song is also a statement that Jesus has no rival or equal. His power is unmatched and absolute.



Perhaps some of us understand God loves us through the death and resurrection of Jesus, but haven’t grasped His power, ability and will to move strongly in our present circumstances. Or perhaps, we understand God as the supreme, omnipotent Deity He is, but have never known Him close and tender, as a friend acquainted with the depths of our humanity, knowing our flaws cannot perturb His love. Our prayer for this song is that we can all enter into a deeper, more lateral, revelation of the person of Jesus Christ—the epitome of beauty.”

Brooke Ligertwood & Ben Fielding

 

Today many have celebrated seeing God glorified in such splendour, especially on a secular platform.

“There is no other name like the name of Jesus. It was stunning to see the name of Jesus exalted at the Grammys. To know the passion, heart and purity of these two behind the scenes makes this moment even more breathtaking. You guys inspire us.
Thank you @brianchouston for the clip and for yours and @bobbiehouston leadership. You’ve helped us all to dream bigger, reach further and believe our great God for more of him.

@christinecaine was among one the first people to lead with the congratulatory messages – “This made me cry … so beautiful.
Congratulations @brookeligertwood @ben_fielding and all the @hillsongworship team on winning a Grammy for ‘What a Beautiful Name’”
