The Name Above Every Name

Gerhard Ter Steegen

Luke i. 31

Name of Jesus! highest Name!

Name that earth and Heaven adore!

From the heart of God it came,

Leads me to God's heart once more.

Name of Jesus! living tide!

Days of drought for me are past;

How much more than satisfied,

Are the thirsty lips at last!

Name of Jesus! dearest Name!

Bread of Heaven, and balm of love,

Oil of gladness, surest claim

To the treasures stored above.

Jesus gives forgiveness free,

Jesus cleanses all my stains,

Jesus gives His life to me,

Jesus always He remains.

Only Jesus! fairest Name!

Life, and rest, and peace and bliss;

Jesus, evermore the same,

He is mine, and I am His.
