O Jesu our Lord, Thy name be adored

Full Text

1 Oh Jesu, our Lord,
Thy name be adored,
For all the rich blessings conveyed by thy word.

2 In spirit we trace
Thy wonders of grace,
And cheerfully join in a concert of praise.

3 The Ancient of Days
His glory displays,
And shines on his chosen with cherishing rays.

4 The trumpet of God
Is sounding abroad,
The language of mercy, salvation through blood.

5 Thrice happy are they
Who hear and obey,
And share in the blessings of this gospel day.

6 The people who know
Their Savior below,
With burning affection to worship him glow.

7 Their anguish and smart,
And sorrow depart,
Who find his salvation inscribed on their heart.

8 This blessing be mine,
Through favor divine;
But oh, my Redeemer, the glory be thine.

9 The work is of grace,
Thine, thine be the praise;
And mine to adore thee, and tell of thy ways.

The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1791
