Christ My Song - 1060
His name is Jesus! None beside - "His name Jesus"
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
"His name Jesus."
1. His name is Jesus! None beside
can do the sinner good;
far off was I, but Jesus died,
and I have peace with God.
His name is dearer to me now
than every name beside;
all glories beam around the brow
of Jesus crucified!
2. The Holy One, who knew no sin,
God made him sin for me;
the Saviour died my soul to win,
he lives, and I am free!
His precious blood alone availed
to wash my sins away;
through weakness he o'er Hell prevailed,
through death he won the day.
3. His beauty shineth far above
a seraph's power of praise,
and I shall live and learn his love,
through everlasting days.
The knowing that he loveth me
hath made my cup run o'er;
yes! Jesus all my song shall be
today and evermore.
Hannah K. Burlingham, Wayside Songs, 1901, 142-143.
