Jesus! That name is love,
 
Jesus, our Lord!
 
Jesus, all names above,
 
Jesus, the Lord!
 
Thou, Lord, our all must be;
 
Nothing that's good have we,
 
Nothing apart from Thee,
 
Jesus, our Lord!
Matthew 1:21; Acts 2:36; Ephesians 1:21; John 20:25; Romans 7:18; John 15:5

As Son of Man it was,
 
Jesus, the Lord!
 
Thou gav'st Thy life for us,
 
Jesus, our Lord!
 
Great was indeed Thy love,
 
All other loves above,
 
Love Thou didst dearly prove,
 
Jesus, our Lord!
Luke 19:10; 1 John 3:16; 1 Corinthians 1:2; John 15:9; John 15:13; Galatians 2:20

Righteous alone in Thee,
 
Jesus, the Lord!
 
Thou wilt a refuge be,
 
Jesus, our Lord!
 
Whom then have we to fear,
 
What trouble, grief or care,
 
Since Thou art ever near,
 
Jesus, our Lord!
Philippians 3:9; Hebrews 6:18-20; Psalm 27:1; Hebrews 13:5

Soon Thou wilt come again,
 
Jesus, the Lord!
 
We shall be happy then,
 
Jesus, our Lord!
 
When Thine own face we see,
 
Then shall we like Thee be,
 
Then evermore with Thee,
 
Jesus, our Lord!
