754. Jesus! Name Of Wondrous Love

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

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

3 Jesus! Name of priceless worth
To the fallen of the earth,
For the promise that it gave,
"Jesus shall his people save."

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 giv'n
Under all the mighty heav'n,
Whereby those to sin enslaved,
Burst their fetters and are saved.

6 Jesus! Name of wondrous love!
Human Name of God above;
Pleading only this we flee,
Helpless, 0 our God, to thee.
