Jesus There's Something About That Name Song

Who Wrote There's Something About That Name

Bill and Gloria Gaither are the authors and composers of this beautiful song, "Jesus, There's Something About That Name". They composed this song in 1970 when Bill was 34 years old and Gloria was 28 years old.

It was composed after loss of grandparents and onset of their own parenthood. We can only speculate as to what was going on in their minds at this difficult and challenging time.

Jesus is the name that billions of people in this world turn to when they face all sorts of challenges. Christians going through wars such as the war in the Middle East turn to this name for safety. Where else would they go when going through such crises that they have no control over but to Master, Savior, Jesus.
Bill and Gloria Gaither

When people are on their deathbeds they turn to this name. Jesus is the savior to them as they face their end.

Even those that have few problems can turn to him to praise Him for all the blessings that they are experiencing. There is indeed something about that name.

Kings and kingdoms shall pass away.
But there's something about that name.

There Is Something About That Name Lyrics

Below are the lyrics of this beautiful hymn:

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus; there's just something about that name.
Master, Savior, Jesus, like the fragrance after the rain;
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, let all Heaven and earth proclaim
Kings and kingdoms will all pass away,
But there's something about that name.
Kings and kingdoms will all pass away,
But there's something about that name.
