51. Jesus, Our Lord! We Know Thy Name

C.M.
by Watts
1
Jesus, our Lord! we know Thy name,
 
Thy name is all our trust;
 
Thou wilt not put our souls to shame,
 
Nor let our hope be lost.
“In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began.” (Titus 1:2)
2
Firm as Thy life the promise stands,
 
And Thou canst well secure
 
What we've committed to Thy hands,
 
Till the appointed hour.
“For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.” (2 Corinthians 1:20)
“For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.” (2 Timothy 1:12)
3
Then wilt Thou own us each by name
 
Before Thy Father's face;
 
And in the new Jerusalem
 
Give us our blood-bought place.
“To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.” (John 10:3)

“Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.” (Revelation 3:12)
“And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” (Revelation 21:2)
