1. 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. 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. 4. Thee I shall constantly proclaim, though earth and hell oppose; bold to confess thy glorious name before a world of foes. 5. His only righteousness I show, his saving truth proclaim; 'tis all my business here below to cry, "Behold the Lamb!" 6. Happy, if with my latest breath I may but gasp his name, preach him to all and cry in death, "Behold, behold the Lamb!"
