Join all the glorious names
Of wisdom, love and power,
That ever mortals knew,
That angels ever bore;
All are too mean to speak His worth
Too poor to set my Savior forth.
But O, what gentle terms,
What condescending ways,
Doth our Redeemer use
To teach His heav’nly grace!
Mine eyes with joy and wonder see
What forms of love He bears for me.
I love my Shepherd’s voice,
His watchful eyes shall keep
My wand’ring soul among
The thousands of this sheep.
He feeds His flock, He calls their names,
His bosom bears the tender lambs.
Jesus, my great High Priest,
Offered His blood, and died;
My guilty conscience seeks
No sacrifice beside;
His powerful blood did once atone
And now it pleads before the throne.
Great Prophet of my God,
My tongue would bless Thy Name,
By Thee the joyful news
Of our salvation came,
The joyful news of sin forgiv’n,
Of hell subdued, and peace with Heav’n.
– by Isaac Watts
