Jesus! O name divinely sweet!
 
How soothing is the sound!
 
What joyful news, what heavenly power
 
In that blest name is found.
Matthew 1:21; Philippians 2:9; John 14:13; Acts 3:16; Acts 4:12

Our souls, as guilty and condemned,
 
In hopeless fetters lay;
 
Our souls with countless sins defiled
 
Of death and hell the prey.
John 3:18
3
Jesus, to purge away our guilt,
 
A willing victim fell,
 
And on His cross triumphant broke
 
The bands of death and hell.
Hebrews 1:3; John 10:18; Hebrews 2:9-14; 1 Corinthians 15:20-21
