6. Jesus! How Much Thy Name Unfolds

by Mary Bowley
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
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
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
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
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)
