JOIN ALL THE GLORIOUS NAMES

1.JOIN all the glorious names  

Of wisdom, love, and power, 

That ever mortals knew, 

That angels ever bore; 

All  are  too  mean  to  speak His

worth, Too mean to set our Saviour forth.


2.But O what gentle means, 

What condescending ways, 

Doth our Redeemer use,

To teach His heavenly grace; 

My soul, with Joy and wonder see 

What forms of love He bears for thee 


3.Arrayed In mortal flesh

The Covenant Angel stand, 

And holds the promises 

And pardons in His hands; 

Commissioned from His Father throne 

To make His grace to  mortal known.


4.Great Prophet of my God,

My tongue would bless Thy name: 

By Thee the Joyful news 

Of our salvation came; 

The Joyful news of sins forgiven, 

Of hell subdued, and peace with heaven.


5.Be Thou my Counsellor,

My Pattern, and my Guide; 

And through this desert land

Still keep me near Thy side : 

O let my feet ne'er run astray, 

Nor rove, nor seek the crooked way 


6.I love my Shepherd's voice;

His watchful eye shall keep 

My wandering soul among 

The thousands of His sheep ; 

He feeds His flock, He calls their names, 

Bears In His arms the tender lambs.

 

7.Jesus, my great Hlgh-prlest,

Offered His blood and died; 

My guilty conscience seeks 

No sacrifice beside; 

His powerful blood did once atone, 

And now It pleads before the throne.'


8.O Thou almighty Lord,

My Conqueror and my King, 

Thy sceptre and Thy sword,

Thy reign of grace, I sing; 

Thine is the power : behold 

I sit In willing bonds before Thy feet.


9.Now let my soul arise,

And tread the tempter down : 

My Captain leads me forth 

To conquest and a crown : 

March on, nor fear to win the day, 

Though death and hell obstruct the way. 


10.Should all the hosts of death, 

And powers of hell unknown, 

Put their most dreadful forms 

Of rage and malice on,I shall be safe;   

for Christ displays Superior 

power and guardian grace.
