C.M.

1
Jesus! how much Thy name unfolds
 
To every opened ear;
 
The pardoned sinner's memory holds
 
None other half so dear.
Acts 4:12; Isaiah 9:6; Psalm 8:1
2
Thy name encircles every grace
 
That God as man could show;
 
There only could He fully trace
 
A life divine below.
Colossians 2:9; John 1:14
3
Jesus—it speaks a life of love,
 
Of sorrows meekly borne;
 
It tells of sympathy above,
 
Whatever makes us mourn.
John 15:9; Isaiah 53:3-4; Hebrews 4:15
4
Jesus, the One who knew no sin,
 
Made sin to make us just;
 
Thou gav'st Thyself our love to win—
 
Our full confiding trust.
2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 5:25; Galatians 2:20
5
The mention of Thy name shall bow
 
Our hearts to worship Thee;
 
The chiefest of ten thousand Thou,
 
Whose love has set us free.
Song of Solomon 5:10; Galatians 1:4
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
