3382. Jesus, Name of Wondrous Love

1. Jesus! Name of wondrous love!
Name all other names above!
Unto which must every knee
Bow in deep humility.

2. Jesus! Name of priceless worth
To the fallen sons of earth,
For the promise that it gave—
Jesus shall His people save.

3. Jesus! Name decreed of old,
To the maiden mother told—
Kneeling in her lowly cell—
By the angel Gabriel.

4. Jesus! Name of mercy mild,
Given to the holy Child,
When the cup of human woe
First He tasted here below.

5. Jesus! Only name that’s given
Under all the mighty heaven,
Whereby man, to sin enslaved,
Bursts his fetters, and is saved.

6. Jesus! Name of wondrous love,
Human name of God above!
Pleading only this, we flee,
Helpless, O our God, to Thee.
