C.M.


1
JESUS! how much Thy Name unfolds
To every opened ear!
The pardoned sinner's memory holds
No other name so dear.
2
That Name encircles every grace
That God as Man could show;
Thus only could we fully trace
A life divine below.
3
Jesus - it speaks a life of love,
Of sorrows meekly borne;
It tells of sympathy above,
Whatever makes us mourn.
4
Jesus, the One who knew not sin,
Made sin to make us just;
Thou gav'st Thyself our love to win,
Our full confiding trust.
5
The mention of Thy Name doth bow
Our hearts to worship Thee
The chiefest of ten thousand Thou,
Whose love has set us free.

Miss. M. Bowley (1813-1856)
