Christ My Song - 789
Name of Jesus! highest Name! - The Name above every name
(Frances Bevan/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
The Name above every name.
2. Name of Jesus! living tide!
days of drought for me are past;
how much more than satisfied,
are the thirsty lips at last!
3. Name of Jesus! dearest Name!
bread of Heaven, and balm of love,
oil of gladness, surest claim
to the treasures stored above.
4. Jesus gives forgiveness free,
Jesus cleanses all my stains,
Jesus gives his life to me,
Jesus always He remains.
5. Only Jesus! fairest Name!
life, and rest, and peace and bliss;
Jesus, evermore the same,
he is mine, and I am his.
Frances Bevan, Hymns of Ter Steegen, Suso and others 1, 1899, 17-18.
