350. 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 God decreed
for this child of David's seed,
which the angel Gabriel
did the maiden mother tell.

3 Jesus! name of priceless worth
to the fallen ones of earth,
for the promise that it gave,
'Jesus shall His people save.'

4 Jesus! only name that’s given
to all living under heaven,
Whereby they, to sin enslaved,
burst their fetters and are saved.

5 Jesus! name of wondrous love!
human name of God above!
Pleading only this, we claim
our salvation in that name.
