Jesus, the name high over all

Jesus, the name high over all
in hell or earth or sky;
angels and men before it fall
and devils fear and fly,
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,
it turns their hell to heaven.

3. Jesus the prisoner’s fetters breaks
and bruises Satan’s head;
power into strengthless souls he speaks
and life into the dead,
and life into the dead.

4. O that the world might taste and see
the riches of his grace!
The arms of love that welcome me
would all mankind embrace,
would all mankind embrace.

5. His righteousness alone I show,
his saving truth proclaim;
this is my work on earth below,
to cry, ‘Behold the Lamb!’
to cry, ‘Behold the Lamb!’

6. Happy if with my final breath
I may but gasp his name,
preach him to all, and cry in death,
‘Behold, behold the Lamb!’
‘Behold, behold the Lamb!’
