While traveling this past summer to visit our daughter, who is serving with a Seattle church planting team, the title phrase came to mind, and that evening I wrote down the initial lyrics. It was too good to keep to myself, so I asked Rick if he'd like to collaborate, and he followed up with additional lyrics and the music. I'd had the prior privilege of co-writing "My One Desire" with Rick, Elton Smith, and Steve Israel. He also did a wonderful job recording the song. I played the bass track, but the rest is all Rick! It is our prayer that this song is a blessing to you as you consider the miracle of God making Himself known through the incarnation of His son. Yes, love has a name, and that name is Jesus. Enjoy!

Life is a gift
Much more than it seems
When Jesus renews
When Jesus redeems.

Because He cares
Because He came
Love now is real
Love has a Name.

Love has a Name
The greatest I've known
Written in blood
To make me His own.

Mankind to save
Hearts to reclaim
Jesus is real
Love has a Name.

No other name can redeem us
No other name can set the captives free
No other name can save us
None but the Name of Jesus!
