JESUS, Name of matchless splendour!

Name all other names above!

Glorious Son of God incarnate,

King of Kings, and Lord of love!


Name that to our hearts is nearest,

Here the stricken soul doth hide;

Name that to our hearts is dearest,

As in Jesus we confide.


“Call Him Jesus!” He shall save us

From the tyranny of sin;

From its condemnation save us,

From iniquity within.


Thanks we give, and adoration,

Every day and every hour,

For an uttermost salvation,

Freedom from its guilt and power.


Jesus! sweetest note of any

In the lowly pilgrim’s song;

Jesus! the triumphant music

Of the bright angelic throng.


Earth to Him her face upraises,

Knows Him as the great I am!

Heaven resounds with Jesus’ praises,

Glory to the bleeding Lamb!
