To the Name of Our Salvation

Author: John Mason Neale (1818-1866) Meter: Appears in 108 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 1:1-4 Lyrics: 1 To the Name of our salvation laud and honour let us pay, which for many a generation hid in God's foreknowledge lay; but with holy exultation we may sing aloud today. 2 Jesus is the name we treasure, name beyond what words can tell; name of gladness, name of pleasure, ear and heart delighting well; name of sweetness passing measure, saving us from sin and hell. 3 'Tis the name that whoso preaches speaks like music to the ear; who in prayer this name beseeches finds its comfort ever near; who its perfect wisdom reaches, heavenly joy possesses here. 4 Jesus is the name exalted over every other name; in this name, whene'er assaulted, we can put our foes to shame: strength to them who else had halted, eyes to blind and feet to lame. 5 Therefore we in love adoring, this most blessed name revere, holy Jesus, thee imploring so to write it in us here that, hereafter heavenward soaring, we may sing with angels there.

Stricken, Smitten, and Afflicted

Author: Thomas Kelly Meter: D Appears in 82 hymnals Scripture: Hebrews 1:1-2 Lyrics: 1 Stricken, smitten, and afflicted, see him dying on the tree! 'Tis the Christ by man rejected; yes, my soul, 'tis he, 'tis he! 'Tis the long-expected Prophet, David's Son, yet David's Lord; by his Son God now has spoken: 'tis the true and faithful Word. 2 Tell me, ye who hear him groaning, was there ever grief like his? Friends thro' fear his cause disowning, foes insulting his distress; many hands were raised to wound him, none would interpose to save; but the deepest stroke that pierced him was the stroke that Justice gave. 3 Ye who think of sin but lightly nor suppose the evil great here may view its nature rightly, here its guilt may estimate. Mark the sacrifice appointed, see who bears the awful load; 'tis the Word, the Lord's Anointed, Son of Man and Son of God. 4 Here we have a firm foundation, here the refuge of the lost; Christ's the Rock of our salvation, his the name of which we boast. Lamb of God, for sinners wounded, sacrifice to cancel guilt! None shall ever be confounded who on him their hope have built.

He who on earth as man was known

Whose love secures them all the way, And crowns them at the end. Topics: Christ Intercession and Reign; At the Right Hand of the Majesty on High
