140 God Takes Different Names to Represent Different Ages

Intro

In every age, God does new work

and is called by a new name;

how could He do the same work in different ages?

Could one name denote God in His entirety?

Be it the age of Jehovah or of Jesus,

each age is represented by a name.


Verse 1

At the end of the Age of Grace,

the final age and Jesus have come.

How could He still be called Jesus,

taking the form of Jesus again?

Have you forgotten that Jesus

was only mankind’s Redeemer?

How could He conquer, perfect man

in the last days, in the last days?


Pre-chorus 1

God’s name, work, images are used

to divide and shift the ages.

God’s name and work represent His age

and His work in every age.


Chorus

No name can fully stand for God.

Each name can only represent

God’s disposition for that age,

as long as it denotes His work.

So, God can choose whatever name befits

His disposition to represent that age.


Verse 2

In each age, the work that God does,

the name by which He is called,

the image that He assumes,

and all the work He does till now,

they don’t follow a single rule,

and aren’t subject to limits.

He is Jehovah and Jesus,

He’s Messiah and Almighty God.


Pre-chorus 2

His work undergoes gradual change

with matching changes in His name.

All His names denote Him, but none fully.

His work shows His disposition.


Chorus

No name can fully stand for God.

Each name can only represent

God’s disposition for that age,

as long as it denotes His work.

So, God can choose whatever name befits

His disposition to represent that age.
