Hymn/Song Information

To our Redeemer's glorious Name




To our Redeemerís glorious Name
Awake the sacred song:
O may His loveóimmortal flameó
Tune every heart and tongue.


His love, what mortal tongue can reach?
What mortal tongue display?
Imaginationís utmost stretch
In wonder dies away.


Let wonder still with love unite,
And gratitude and joy;
Be Jesus our supreme delight,
His praise our best employ.


Jesus, Who left His throne on high,
Left the bright realms of bliss,
And came on earth to bleed and dieó
Was ever love like this?


Dear Lord, while we adoring pay
Our humble thanks to Thee,
May every heart with rapture say,
The Savior died for me.


O may the sweet, the blissful theme
Fill every heart and tongue,
Till strangers love Thy charming Name,
And join the sacred song.


---Alternative verses---


His love, what mortal thought can reach?
What mortal tongue display?
Imaginationís utmost stretch
In wonder dies away.


He left his radiant throne on high,
Left the bright realms of bliss,
And came to earth to bleed and die!
Was ever love like this?
