M. B. Peters


JESUS! how much Thy name unfolds

To every opened ear!

The pardoned sinner’s memory holds

None other half so dear.


Thy name encircles every grace

That God as man could show;

There only could He fully trace

A life divine below


Jesus it speaks a life of love,

Of sorrows meekly borne;

It tells of sympathy above

Whatever make us mourn.


Jesus the One who knew no sin,

Made sin to make us just;

Thou gavest Thyself our love to win,

Our full confiding trust.


The mention of Thy name shall bow

Our hearts to worship Thee;

The Chiefest of ten thousand Thou,

Whose love has set us free.
