1Holy Name of Jesus,
Name wherein we trust,
Name that showest the Father
Merciful and just!
We would own and bless Thee
While our lips have breath:
What were life without Thee?
Oh! And what were death?
2Holy Name of Jesus!
Who can tell Thy worth?
Love doth crown and hallow
Many a name of earth;
But the best and dearest,
Precious though they be,
Yield but some faint image,
Royal Name! Of Thee.
3Holy Name of Jesus!
In temptation’s hour,
When we next invoke Thee,
May we feel Thy power;
Flow, like purest ointment,
Heart and mind within,
Quelling with Thy sweetness
Deadly charms of sin.
4Holy Name of Jesus!
Prayers that rest on Thee,
In the Father’s presence
Find acceptance free;
O the steadfast promise!
O the love sublime!
“Ask, and He will give it”
In His way and time.
5Holy Name of Jesus,
Name divinely true!
Thine be all we purpose,
Think, or speak, or do;
So may we, from ruin
By the Cross restored,
Live and die confessing,
Jesus Christ is Lord! Amen.
Hebrews4:14Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
