To the Name of our salvation

Laud and honor let us pay,

Which for many a generation

Hid in God's foreknowledge lay;

But with holy exultation

We may sing aloud today.

Jesus is the Name we treasure;

Name beyond what words can tell;

Name of gladness, Name of pleasure,

Ear and heart delighting well;

Name of sweetness, passing measure,

Saving us from sin and hell.

'Tis the Name for adoration,

Name for songs of victory,

Name for holy meditation

In this vale of misery,

Name for joyful veneration

By the citizens on high.

'Tis the Name that whoso preacheth

Speaks like music to the ear;

Who in prayer this Name beseecheth

Sweetest comfort findeth near;

Who its perfect wisdom reacheth,

Heavenly joy possesseth here.

Therefore we, in love adoring,

This most blessed Name revere;

Holy Jesus, thee imploring

So to write it in us here

That hereafter, heavenward soaring,

We may sing with angels there.

Amen.
