Hymn/Song Information

To the name that brings salvation honour




To the name that brings salvation
honour, worship, laud we pray:
that for many a generation
hid in God’s foreknowledge lay;
but to ev’ry tongue and nation
Holy Church proclaims today.


Name of gladness, name of pleasure,
by the tongue ineffable,
name of sweetness passing measure,
to the ear delectable:
‘tis our safeguard and our treasure,
‘tis our help ‘gainst sin and hell.


‘Tis the name of adoration,
‘tis the name of victory;
‘tis the name for meditation
in the vale of misery;
‘tis the name for veneration
by the citizens on high.


‘Tis the name by right exalted
over every other name:
that when we are sore assaulted
puts our enemies to shame:
strength to them that else had halted,
eyes to blind, and feet to lame.


Jesu, we thy name adoring,
long to see thee as thou art:
of thy clemency imploring
so to write it in our heart,
that hereafter, upward soaring,
we with angels may have part.
