We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Is there on earth a nobler name

Is there on earth a nobler name

Published in 15 hymnals

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.
