1 Jesus, to destroy our foe,
Chose to bear the name of Savior,
But He soon through men's behavior
Found it was a name of woe.
Yet, since He for us was smitten
And has borne our sin and strife,
Evermore our names are written
Glorious in the book of life.
2 Jesus, name of wondrous grace,
Fount of mercy and salvation,
First fruit of the new creation,
Weary sinner's resting place,
Banner of the faith victorious,
Anchor of our hope and love,
Guide us in Thy footsteps glorious,
Bear us to Thy home above.
