To Our Redeemers Glorious Name


To our Redeemer’s glorious name
Awake the sacred song.
Oh, may His love, immortal flame,
Tune ev’ry heart and tongue!

His love, what mortal thought can reach,
What mortal tongue portray?
Imagination’s utmost stretch
In wonder dies away.

He left His radiant throne on high,
Left realms of heav’nly bliss,
And came to earth to bleed and die–
Was ever love like this?

Dear Lord, while we adoring pay
Our humble thanks to Thee,
May every heart with rapture say,
“The Savior died for me!”

Oh, may the sweet, the blissful theme
Fill every heart and tongue
Till strangers love Thy charming name,
And join the sacred song!

Amen.
