Representative Text

1 Is there on earth a nobler name
Than Jesus to be found?
Who can assert a higher claim,
Or more with truth abound?

2 The Son of God, adorned with grace,
Commission'd from above,
He bears to our rebellious race
The messages of love.

3 Behold his gentle spirit feel
The suff'rings of mankind;
And with a word the sorrows heal
Of Body and of mind.

4 How lofty were the truths he taught!
How pure the life he led!
And shall another Lord be sought,
And we disown our Head?

5 Asham'd of Jesus, shall we let
This precious Savior go?
And, basely, at defiance set
Him who hath lov'd us so?

6 Forbid it, Lord! nor let us yield
To this unworthy shame:
Let each, with holy courage fill'd,
Rejoice in Jesus' name.
