Representative Text

1. Jesus of Nazareth! O what a name!
Let us rejoice and His glory proclaim;
Savior and keeper forever the same,
Shepherd, Redeemer and Lord.

Jesus of Nazareth, once crucified,
Jesus of Nazareth, now glorified,
Jesus of Nazareth, throned at God’s side,
Glory and praise to His name.

2. Jesus of Nazareth, truly a man,
Low in His cradle His life He began,
Lived before God, both in pattern and plan,
Righteous, obedient One. [Refrain]

3. Jesus of Nazareth, nailed to the tree,
Dying that we by His death might be free,
Bearing the curse all for you and for me,
Dying a ransom for all. [Refrain]

4. Jesus of Nazareth, raised from the dead,
Spotless and holy, and still in our stead,
Made for us ever our glorified head,
Raised from the dead for us all. [Refrain]

5. Jesus of Nazareth, seated on high,
Sending the Spirit of grace to apply
Life through the Word unto men far and nigh,
Offering salvation to all. [Refrain]

6. Jesus of Nazareth, earth’s coming king,
Peace to the warring world soon He shall bring,
Nations of saved ones His praises shall sing;
All shall bow down at His name. [Refrain]
