His Name Is Jesus

Representative Text

1 His name is Jesus! None beside
Can do the sinner good;
Far off was I, but Jesus died,
And I have peace with God.
His name is dearer to me now
Than every name beside;
All glories beam around the brow
Of Jesus crucified!

2 The Holy One, who knew no sin,
God made Him sin for me;
The Savior died my soul to win,
He lives, and I am free.
His precious blood alone availed
To wash my sins away;
Through weakness He o’er hell prevailed,
Through death He won the day.

3 His beauty shineth far above
A seraph’s power of praise,
And I shall live and learn His love
Through everlasting days.
The knowing that He loveth me
Hath made my cup run o’er.
Yes! Jesus all my song shall be,
Today, and evermore!
