Jesus! the Name High Over All

Melody - "Gräfenberg," Johann Crüger, 1647

Charles Wesley, 1749

Jesus! the Name high over all,
In hell or earth or sky;
Angels and mortals prostrate fall,
And devils fear and fly.

2. Jesus! the Name to sinners dear,
The Name to sinners given;
It scatters all their guilty fear,
It turns their hell to heaven.

3. Jesus! the prisoner's fetters breaks,
And bruises Satan's head;
Power into strengthless souls it speaks,
And life into the dead.

4. O that the world might taste and see
The riches of His grace!
The arms of love that compass me
Would all the world embrace.

5. Thee I shall constantly proclaim,
Though earth and hell oppose;
Bold to confess Thy glorious Name
Before a world of foes.

6. His only righteousness I show,
His saving truth proclaim;
'Tis all my business here below
To cry "Behold the Lamb!"

7. Happy, if with my latest breath
I may but gasp His Name,
Preach Him to all and cry in death,
"Behold, behold the Lamb!"
