SALVATION
254
U Jesus is the name we treasure,                 4 'Tis the name that whoso preacheth
Name beyond what words can tell,              Speaks like music to the ear;
| Name of gladness, name of pleasure,           Who in prayer this name beseecheth
Ear and heart delighting well;                      Sweetest comfort findeth near;
Name of sweetness passing measure,             Who its perfect wisdom reacheth
Saving us from sin and hell.                        Heavenly joy possesseth here.
3 'Tis the name for adoration, Name for songs of victory, Name for holy meditation In this vale of misery,
I Name for joyful veneration By the citizens on high.
5 Jesus is the name exalted
Over every other name; In this name, whene'er assaulted,
We can put our foes to shame; Strength to them who else had halted,
Eyes to blind, and feet to lame.
6 Therefore we, in love adoring,
This most blessSd name revere, Holy Jesus, Thee imploring
So to write it in us here That hereafter, heavenward soaring,
We may sing with angels there.
German Hymn. Tr. J. M. Nealh
