Hymn/Song Information

Jesus Name all names above




Jesu! Name all names above,
Jesu, best and dearest,
Jesu, fount of perfect love,
Holiest, tenderest, nearest;
Jesu, source of grace completest,
Jesu purest, Jesu sweetest,
Jesu well of power divine,
Make me, keep me, seal me Thine.


Woe that I have turned aside
after fleshly pleasure!
Woe that I have never tried
for the heavenly treasure!
Treasure, safe in homes supernal,
incorruptible, eternal;
treasure no less price hath won
than the passion of the Son!


Jesu, open me the gate,
That the robber entered,
Who in that most lost estate
Wholly on Thee ventured.
Thou Whose wounds
are ever pleading,
And Thy passion interceding,
From my misery let me rise
To a home in paradise.


Jesu, crowned with thorns for me,
Scourged for my transgression,
Witnessing through agony,
That Thy good confession;
Jesu, clad in purple raiment,
For my evil making payment,
Let not all Thy woe and pain,
Let not Calv’ry be in vain.


When I reach death’s bitter sea,
And its waves mount higher,
Earthly help forsaking me
As the storm draws nigher,
Jesu, leave me not to languish
Helpless, homeless, full of anguish;
Jesu, let me hear Thee say,
“Thou shalt be with Me today.”

Jesus, Name all names above,
Jesus, best and dearest;
Jesus, Fount of perfect love,
holiest, tenderest, nearest:
Jesus, Source of grace completest;
Jesus purest, Jesus sweetest;
Jesus, Well of power divine,
make me, keep me, seal me thine!


Jesus, crowned with thorns for me,
scourged for my transgression!
Witnessing, through agony,
that thy good confession!
Jesus, clad in purple raiment,
for my evils making payment:
let not all thy woe and pain,
let not Calvary be in vain!


Jesus, open me the gate
that of old he entered
who, in that most low estate,
wholly on thee ventured;
thou, whose wounds
are ever pleading
and thy passion interceding,
from my misery let me rise
to a home in paradise!
