I. Watts

JOIN all the glorious names

Of wisdom, love, and power,

That ever mortals knew,

That angels ever bore:

All are too mean to speak His worth,

Too mean to set my Saviour forth.


Great Prophet of my God,

My tongue would bless Thy Name:

By Thee the joyful news

Of our salvation came,

The joyful news of sins forgiven

Of hell subdued and peace with heaven.


Jesus, my great High Priest,

Offered His blood, and died;

My guilty conscience seeks

No sacrifice beside:

His powerful blood did once atone

And now it pleads before the throne.


I love my Shepherd’s voice:

His watchful eye shall keep

My wandering soul among

The thousands of His sheep:

He feeds His flock, He calls their names,

His bosom bears the tender lambs.


My Savior and my Lord,

My Conqueror and my King,

Thy sceptre and Thy sword,

Thy reigning grace I sing:

Thine is the power, behold I sit

In willing bonds beneath Thy feet.
