145. The Name Above All Other

1 There is a name whereby we may be saved,
It brings the joy and peace our hearts have craved;
One Heart divine, which felt a lost world’s grief,
In tender pity stooped to our relief.

Refrain:
‘Tis Jesus’ name! that name that never fails;
The name that over sin and death prevails;
Our Friend, our Saviour, Comforter and King,
Unending praise our grateful hearts would bring.

2 O blessed name! our only source of hope,
As faint with care, through sin’s dark night we grope;
No human voice can speak our sins forgiv’n,
No human hand can write our names in heav’n. [Refrain]

3 When countless sins defy our weak control,
And like strong waves o’erwhelm the sinking soul,
There is a refuge from the tides of sin,
‘Tis that blest Rock once cleft to take us in. [Refrain]
