"To Our Redeemer's Glorious Name"
by Anne Steele, 1716-1778
THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
(St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)
1. To our Redeemer's glorious name
Awake the sacred song.
Oh, may His love, immortal flame,
Tune every heart and tongue.
2. His love, what human thought can reach,
What mortal tongue portray?
Imagination's utmost stretch
In wonder dies away.
3. He left His radiant throne on high,
Left realms of heavenly bliss,
And came to earth to bleed and die,--
Was ever love like this?
4. Dear Lord, while we adoring pay
Our humble thanks to Thee,
May every heart with rapture say,
"The Savior died for me!"
5. Oh, my the sweet, the blissful theme
Fill every heart and tongue
Till strangers love the charming name
And join the sacred song!
