Hymn/Song Information

Jesus the name high over all In hell or




Jesus! the Name high over all,
In hell or earth or sky;
Angels and men before it fall,
And devils fear and fly.


Jesus! the Name to sinners dear,
The Name to sinners given;
It scatters all their guilty fear,
It turns their hell to Heaven.


Jesus! the prisoner’s fetters breaks,
And bruises Satan’s head;
Power into strengthless souls it speaks,
And life into the dead.


O that mankind might taste and see
The riches of His grace!
The arms of love that compass me
Would all the world embrace.


O that my Jesu’s heavenly charms
Might every bosom move!
Fly, sinners, fly into those arms
Of everlasting love.


Thee I shall constantly proclaim,
Though earth and hell oppose;
Bold to confess Thy glorious Name
Before a world of foes.


His only righteousness I show,
His saving grace proclaim;
’Tis all my business here below
To cry “Behold the Lamb!”


Happy, if with my latest breath
I may but gasp His Name,
Preach Him to all and cry in death,
“Behold, behold the Lamb!”


---Alternative verses---


O that the world might taste and see
The riches of His grace!
The arms of love that compass me
Would all the world embrace.
