I.XLII. Wonderful thy Name we call

1 Wonderful thy Name we call,
And wonderful thou art!
We, in Spirit, prostrate fall,
And hail thy wounded Heart!
Thou hast us redeem'd to god,
From ev'ry Nation, Kindred, Tongue;
Thou hast wash'd us in thy Blood,
And taught us the new Song.

2 Jesus only is the Lord,
He only holy is;
Jesus is by us ador'd,
He is our perfect Bliss;
We in him, and he in us,
Thro' all his Wounds, and Death, and Blood,
In one Body on the Cross
Were perfected to God.

3 Thou, O Christ, in Zion prais'd,
Whom we our Saviour call,
In the Godhead's Glory rais'd
Above the Heavens all:
Thee we hail, thou Prince of Heav'n!
'Tis thee we hail, thou faithful Heart!
Thou thyself to us hast giv'n;
All hail our better Part!

4 Worthy is the holy Lamb,
Pre-eminence is giv'n;
Greatly glorious is his Name,
Above the highest Heav'n!
Yet he names on us his Name,
And boldly owns the Brotherhood,
Calls us Brethren without Shame,
And us presents to God.
