68. Oh, how I love Jesus

1 Jesus, the name high over all,
In hell, or earth, or sky:
Angels and men before it fall,
And devils fear and fly.

Oh, how I love Jesus;
Oh, how I love Jesus;
Oh, how I love Jesus;
Because he first loved me.

2 Jesus, the name to sinners dear,--
The name to sinners given;
It scatters all their guilty fear;
It turns their hell to heaven.

3 Jesus the prisoner's fetters breaks,
And bruises Satan's head;
Power into strengthless souls he speaks,
And life unto the dead.

4 Oh, that the world might taste and see
The riches of his grace;
The arms of love that compass me,
Would all mankind embrace.

Chorus: How can I forget thee?
Dear Lord, remember me.
