| 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 mean to set my Saviour forth.
|2|| Great Prophet of my God,
My tongue would bless Thy name:
By Thee the joyful news
Of our salvation came;
The joyful news of sins forgiven,
Of hell subdued, and peace with Heaven.
|3|| 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.
|4|| To my dear Suretyís hand
Will I commit my cause;
He answers and fulfils
His Fatherís broken laws:
Behold my soul at freedom set!
My Surety paid the dreadful debt.
|5|| My Advocate appears
For my defence on high;
The Father bows His ears
And lays His sentence by:
Not all that hell or sin can say
Shall turn His heart and love away.
|6|| My Saviour and my Lord,
My Conqueror and my King!
Thy sceptre and Thy sword,
Thy reigning grace I sing:
Thine is the power: behold I sit
In willing bonds beneath Thy feet.
|Isaac Watts, 1674-1748|
