JESUS! the name high over all,
   In hell, or earth, or sky:
Angels and men before it fall,
    And devils fear and fly.
2  Jesus! the name to sinners dear,
    The name to sinners given;
It scatters all their guilty fear,
    It turns their hell to Heaven.
3  Jesus! the prisoner’s fetters breaks,
    And bruises Satan’s head;
Power into strengthless souls it speaks,
    And life into the dead.
4  O that the world might taste and see
    The riches of His grace;
The arms of love that compass me
    Would all mankind embrace.
5  His only righteousness I show,
    His saving grace proclaim;
’Tis all my business here below,
    To cry, ‘Behold the Lamb!’
6  Happy, if with my latest breath
    I might but gasp His name;
Preach Him to all, and cry in death:
    ‘Behold, behold the Lamb!’
Charles Wesley, 1707-88
