One of the highlights of the 2010 Study Global Impact Conference was singing “For the Sake of His Name,” a hymn written specifically for the occasion (this is the 10th anniversary of the conference). I’ve included an mp3 from the congregational worship on Tuesday night, the first day that this hymn was sung congregationally.
You can read more about “For the Sake of His Name” here, get the text for the hymn here, or download a free pdf of the 4-part hymn arrangement here. If you’re interested in investigating more hymns written by Chris and Greg, all of their published hymns are here.
The climax of the final stanza, a future glimpse of Jesus’ throne engulfed in loud praise from the lips of ransomed sinners, is particularly moving:
Look to the Throne for the sake of His name;
Think of the throng who will share in His reign.
Some for whose souls we pray
Will share our joy that day,
Joining our song for the sake of His name!
