1 O wondrous Name, by prophets heard
Long years before His birth;
They saw Him coming from afar,
The Prince of Peace on earth.

Refrain:
The Wonderful! The Counselor!
The Great and Mighty Lord!
The everlasting Prince of Peace!
The King, the Son of God!

2 O glorious Name the angels praise
And ransomed saints adore,—
The Name above all other names,
Our refuge evermore. [Refrain]

3 O precious Name, exalted high,
To Him all pow’r is given;
Thro’ Him we triumph over sin,
By Him we enter heaven. [Refrain]
