90. Jesus! Name of wondrous love

Four 7's

St. Bees:

John Bacchus Dykes, 1862

W. Walsham How, 1854

Jesus! Name of wondrous love!

Name all other names above!

Unto which must every knee

Bow in deep humility.

Jesus! Name decreed of old

To the maiden mother told,

Kneeling in her lowly cell,

By the angel Gabriel.

Jesus! Name of priceless worth

To the fallen sons of earth,

For the promise that it gave

"Jesus shall his people save."

Jesus! Name of mercy mild,

Given to the holy Child

When the cup of human woe

First he tasted here below.

Jesus! only Name that's given,

Under all the mighty heaven,

Whereby man, to sin enslaved,

Bursts his fetters and is saved.

Jesus! Name of wondrous love!

Human Name of God above;

Pleading only this we flee,

Helpless, O our God, to thee.

Amen.
