Posted:  08 Mar 2007 03:56
I am looking for a song that we sang at my old church. I think the title was We've Got the Power.

The lyrics I remember are:
Give me your hand, Let's agree together
That all of our enemies will tumble at our feet

Chorus:
We've got the power in the name of Jesus
We've got the power in the name of the Lord
And though satan wages we will not be defeated
Cause we've got the power in the name of the Lord

I think it's "Tho Satan rages" on the chorus
Posted:  09 Mar 2007 01:00
Give me your hand, let's agree together; and all of our enemies, will crumble at our feet. For whatever we bind on earth, shall be bound in Heaven; at the name of Jesus, satan has to flee.

For many years now, satan's tried to stop us; but the church of Jesus, is still alive. Like a mighty army, we keep moving onward; winning every battle, with the Lord by our side.

We've got the power in the name of Jesus. We've got the power in the name of the Lord. Though satan rages we will not be defeated. We've got the power in the name of the Lord.

Where can I find the musical notes for "We've Got the Power"?

Hi Folks!

This is amazing! I have been trying to find the lyrics to this song as well. When I was very young, my grandmother and I were always asked to sing and I always had to sing this song. I'm like Heather though I could not remember the words anymore. I have been singing the chorus to my two young children as part of our nightly bedtime routine. My grandmother passed away before my children were born, but they know this as MamaLean's song! Thank you for allowing me to share this memory with my children!

the chorus is always sung too at the church I attend - Word of Hope (Philippines)... though not quite in that style, lol.

I too have been looking for the music for this. Our song leader wants to sing it soon as they have the overhead for the chorus. So I took one of the Youtube videos and wrote out the melody in the key of F and then found that Bb and C chords worked with it too. Told our song leader that I will play it if he will learn the verses and sing them solo. hahaha If everyone sings loud enough they won't even notice if I miss a chord or two on the piano. It's a great song and gonna be fun to teach our little 5 person choir and eventually the whole congregation.

Wow! Forgot that I really did already find the music for this. It's in a fairly recent compilation called More of the World's Greatest Southern Gospel Songs. I just felt that I would eventually find that I already have it somewhere amongst the hundreds of music books I already have and storage space is getting in short supply here. My new rule is that a book must have at least three songs that I really need before it gets purchased.

Just found the chorus only in a little book I use all the time called "I Will Sing & Praise the Lord: Songs of Celebration, Praise & Worship" published in 1986 by Higher Ground Music Publishing Co. It's available on Amazon although a bit pricey since it's out of print. It's cheaper on Alibris, but not finding it at all on eBay right now.

Does anyone know the meaning behind the song?
Posted:  30 Jun 2010 22:31
Yes! It means that with Jesus living in my heart, i am saved. I have the power 2 go tell others the news of salvation, and Satan can't stop me.

We've Got The Power  in the name of Jesus
We've got the power in the name of the Lord
Tho Satan rages we will not be defeated
We've got the power in the name of the Lord.

Give me your hand and lets agree together
That all our enemies will crumble at our feet
For whatsoever we bind on earth, will be bond in heaven
We've got the power in the name of the Lord.

For many years now, Satan tried to stop us
But the church of Jesus is still alive
Like a mighty army, we keep marching onward
Winning every battle with the Lord by our side
