Reflections on Art and Life

A New Name

She will give you a new name
Your name will be
A mighty conqueror
A brave warrior
A knight of valor

Ten thousands of ruddy horses
Will storm through the gates
Of your desert sand castles
And drag you off
To the ends of horizons

In languish and toil
You will subdue and slay
The ancient dragons
Of mortal self

Twelve foolish maidens
Will toast to your death
One will await
Your resurrection

    Vineyard song:

    I Will Change Your Name

    (D.J. Butler)

    I will change your name
    You shall no longer be called
    Wounded, outcast
    Lonely or afraid

    I will change your name
    Your new name shall be
    Confidence, joyfulness
    Overcoming one
    Faithfulness, friend of God
    One who seeks my face.

    Isaiah 62:2b,4,5b

    …you will be called by a new name
    that the mouth of the LORD will bestow…

    No longer will they call you Deserted,
    or name your land Desolate.
    But you will be called Hephzibah [“my delight is in her”],
    and your land Beulah [“married”];
    for the LORD will take delight in you,
    and your land will be married.

    …as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride,
    so will your God rejoice over you.
