To the Name of our Salvation
1. To the Name of our Salvation
Laud and honour let us pay,
Which for many a generation
Hid in God’s foreknowledge lay,
But with holy exultation
We may sing aloud today.
2. Jesus is the Name we treasure,
Name beyond what words can tell
Name of gladness, Name of pleasure,
Ear and heart delighting well;
Name of sweetness passing measure,
Saving us from sin and hell.
3. ‘Tis the Name that whoso preacheth
Speaks like music to the ear;
Who in prayer this Name beseecheth
Sweetest comfort findeth near,
Who its perfect wisdom reacheth
Heavenly joy possesseth here.
4. Jesus is the Name exalted
Over every other name;
In this Name, whene’er assaulted,
We can put our foes to shame;
Strength to them who else had halted,
Eyes to blind, and feet to lame.
5. Therefore we, in love adoring,
This most blessed Name revere,
Holy Jesus, Thee imploring
So to write it in us here
That hereafter, heavenward soaring,
We may sing with angels there.
