Words by William Walsham How (1823-1897)


1.  Jesus, Name of wondrous love,

Name all other names above!

Unto which must every knee

Bow in deep humility.

2.  Jesus, Name of priceless worth

To the fallen sons of earth,

For the promise that it gave,

“Jesus shall his people save.”

3.  Jesus, Name of mercy mild,

Given to the holy Child,

When the cup of human woe

First he tasted here below.

4.  Jesus, only Name that’s given

Under all the mighty heaven,

Whereby man, to sin enslaved,

Bursts his fetters and is saved.

5.  Jesus, Name of wondrous love!

Human Name of God above;

Pleading only this we flee,

Helpless, O our God, to thee.
