1.  Jesus, the name without compare,

Honor’d on earth and in heaven,

Wherein the Father’s love and care

Is to His children now given.

Savior of all that saved can be,

Fount of God’s grace and mercy free,

Is the Lord Jesus forever.

2.  Jesus, the name alone on earth

Is to redemption afforded,

And at His cross of precious worth

Are we salvation accorded;

Now in His name our pray’rs are heard;

Only in that, when hearts are stirr’d,

Doth now the Spirit us comfort.

3.  Jesus, the name above the sky

Wherein, when seasons are ended,

Nations shall come to God on high,

And ev’ry knee shall be bended,

While all the saved in sweet accord

Sing to the praise of Christ the Lord,

Savior belov’d by the Father.
