1 There is a name high over all,
Whose sweetness doth our souls enthrall,
Before it men and angels fall,
The wonderful name of Jesus.

Wonderful, Counsellor, Prince of Peace,
Jesus Thy pow’r shall never cease;
Daily Thy kingdom on earth doth increase,
Wonderful, Councellor, Prince of Peace.

2 There is a name I hold most dear,
It lights the way however drear;
And never fails my heart to cheer,
The wonderful name of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 When tossed my bark in wildest gales,
Upon life’s stormy sea it sails;
There is a name which never fails,
The wonderful name of Jesus. [Refrain]
