    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
