Break Every Chain

It’s no secret that this worship song is quickly becoming the new “Oceans”. It’s being played in every church, on every Christian radio station, and it’s even being featured on primetime television shows like The Voice.

I first heard this song during a worship service, and from the moment the worship leader sang the first word, my hands were lifted. The lyrics were humbling, encouraging, uplifting, and so beyond eye-opening that the only reaction I had was to lift my hands and my voice, and cry. The lyrics are so simple yet so beautiful. They are the perfect reminder of God’s power and His love for us!

There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of JesusTo break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus

To break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

To break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

All sufficient sacrifice
So freely given
Such a price
Bought our redemption
Heaven’s gates swing wide

There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus

To Break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus

To Break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

To Break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

There’s an army rising up
There’s an army rising up
There’s an army rising up

To Break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

There’s an army rising up
There’s an army rising up
There’s an army rising up

To Break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

To Break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus

To Break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus

To Break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

To Break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain” 

 

What I love about this song and it’s message is that it’s simplicity is powerful! There is power in the name of Jesus. His name is powerful enough to break chains, to move mountains, to overcome obstacles! It says in the song that there’s an army rising up. That army is us. We are soldiers for Christ, and if we believe in the Power of Christ to break every chain, then we have to allow ourselves to fight in the war for Christ!  He laid down his life for all, an all sufficient sacrifice that was so freely given. That life was such a price that bought our redemption and allowed for the gates of Heaven to open wide for us to have the free will to enter!

 This song is a beautiful reminder that the Power of Christ is everlasting, and the mention of His name can break chains!
