76. Jesus! Name of Wondrous Love

1 Jesus! Name of wondrous love,
Name all other names above,
Unto which must ev'ry knee
Bow in deep humility.

2 Jesus! Name decreed of old,
To the maiden mother told --
Kneeling in her lowly cell --
By the angel Gabriel.

3 Jesus! Name of priceless worth
To the fallen here on earth
For the promise that it gave,
"Jesus shall his people save."

4 Jesus! Only name that's giv'n
Under all the mighty heav'n
Whereby all, to sin enslaved,
Burst their fetters and are saved.

5 Jesus! Name of wondrous love,
Human name of God above;
Pleading only this, we, too,
Flee, O God, in faith to you.
