“I speak Jesus” (lyrics by Charity Gayle): “I just wanna speak the name of Jesus, over every heart and every mind, ‘Cause I know there is peace within Your presence. I speak Jesus. ‘Til every dark addiction starts to break, declaring there is hope and there is freedom. I speak Jesus. ‘Cause Your name is power, Your name is healing, Your name is life! Break every stronghold, shine through the shadows, burn like a fire.
Over fear and all anxiety, to every soul held captive by depression. I speak Jesus. Shout Jesus from the mountains, Jesus in the streets. Jesus in the darkness over every enemy, Jesus for my family, I speak the holy name. I just wanna speak the name of Jesus, over every heart and every mind, ‘Cause I know there is peace within Your presence. I speak Jesus.”
Call upon his holy name.
