223. Jesus! Name of wondrous love!

1 Jesus! Name of wondrous love!
Name all other names above!
Name at which must every knee
Bow in deep humility.

2 Jesus! Name of priceless worth
To the fallen sons of earth,
For the promise that it gave--
"Jesus shall His people save."

3 Jesus! Name of mercy mild,
Given to the holy Child.
When the cup of human woe
First He tasted here below.

4 Jesus! Only Name that's given
Under all the mighty heaven,
Whereby man, to sin enslaved,
Burst his fetters, and is saved.

5 Jesus! Name of wondrous Love!
Human Name of Him above!
Pleading only this we flee,
Helpless, 0 our God, to Thee.
