Words: Charles Wesley Music: "Grafenberg" by Johann Cruger Jesus! the Name high over all, In hell or earth or sky; Angels and men before it fall, And devils fear and fly. Jesus! the Name to sinners dear, The Name to sinners giv'n; It scatters all their guilty fear, It turns their hell to Heav'n. Jesus! the prisoner's fetters breaks, And bruises Satan's head; Power into strengthless souls it speaks, And life into the dead. O that mankind might taste and see The riches of His grace! The arms of love that compass me Would all the world embrace. O that my Jesu's heavenly charms Might every bosom move! Fly, sinners, fly into those arms Of everlasting love. Thee I shall constantly proclaim, Though earth and hell oppose; Bold to confess Thy glorious Name Before a world of foes. His only righteousness I show, His saving grace proclaim; 'Tis all my business here below To cry "Behold the Lamb!" Happy, if with my latest breath I may but gasp His Name, Preach Him to all and cry in death, "Behold, behold the Lamb!"
