XXX. The Names of Christ

1 Join all the Names of Love and Power
That ever Men or Angels bore,
All are too mean to speak his Worth,
Saviour, or set thy Glories forth.

2 But o! what condescending Ways
He tak'st to teach his heavenly Grace;
My Eyes with Joy and Wonder see,
What Forms of Love he bear'st for me.

3 Great Prophet, let me bless thy Name!
By thee the joyful Tidings came,
Of Wrath appeas'd, of Sins forgiv'n,
Of Hell subdued, and Peace with Heaven.

4 My bright Example and my Guide,
I wou'd be walking near thy side;
O let me never run astray,
Nor follow the forbidden Way.

5 Jesus, my great high Priest has died,
I seek no Sacrifice beside;
Thy Blood did once for all attone,
And now it pleads before the Throne.

6 My Lord, my Conqueror, and my King.
Thy Scepter and thy Sword I sing,
Thine is the Victory, and I sit
A joyful Subject at thy Feet.

7 Aspire, my Soul, to glorious Deeds,
The Captain of Salvation leads;
March on, nor fear to win the Day,
Tho' Death and Hell obstruct the Way.

12 Shou'd Death, and Hell, and Powers unknown,
Put all their Forms of Mischief on,
I shall be safe; for Christ displays
Salvation in more powerful Ways.
