Thy Name We Love, Lord Jesus
Words: W. Yerbury
Music: St. Michael’s [Cyprus, Goshen, Mozart] | Anonymous tune first published by William Gawler in 1789; some hymnals attribute to Mozart or Haydn
1. Thy Name we love, Lord Jesus;
And lowly bow before Thee;
And while we live, to Thee we give,
All blessing, worship, glory;
We sing aloud Thy praises,
Our hearts and voices blending,
’Tis Thou alone we worthy own;
Thy beauty’s all transcending

2. Thy Name we love, Lord Jesus;
It tells God’s love unbounded
To ruined man, ere time began,
Or heav’n and earth were founded;
Thine is a love eternal,
That found in us its pleasure,
That brought Thee low, to bear our woe,
And make us Thine own treasure.

3. Thy Name we love, Lord Jesus;
It tells Thy birth so lowly,
Thy patience, grace, Thy gentleness,
Thy lonely path, so holy;
Thou wast the “Man of sorrows;”
Our grief, too, Thou didst bear it;
The bitter cup, Thou drankest up;
The thorny crown,—didst wear it.

4. Thy Name we love, Lord Jesus;
God’s Lamb—Thou wast ordained
To bear our sins (Thyself all clean),
And hast our guilt sustained;
We see Thee crowned in glory,
Above the heav’ns now seated,
The vict’ry won, Thy work well done,
Our righteousness completed.
