6.6.6.6.8.8.


1
JESUS! life-giving sound,
The joy of earth and heav'n;
No other help is found,
No other name is giv'n
In which sons of men can boast,
Than His who seeks and saves the lost.
2
His Name the sinner hears
And is from guilt set free;
'Tis music in his ears,
'Tis life and victory;
His heart o'erflows with sacred joy,
And songs of praise his lips employ.
3
Jesus! all praise above;
We sing Thy blessèd Name,
We sing Thy dying love,
Thy rising power proclaim:
But soon, to give Thee worthy praise,
Both heav'n and earth their songs shall raise.

C. Wesley* (1708-1788)
