369. Join All the Glorious Names

1 Join all the glorious names
of wisdom, love, and power,
that ever mortals knew
or angels ever bore;
all are too weak to speak his worth,
too weak to set my Savior forth.

2 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 forgiv'n,
of hell subdued, and peace with heav'n.

3 Be thou my Counselor,
my Pattern and my Guide,
and through this desert land
still keep me by thy side;
O let my feet ne'er run astray,
nor rove, nor seek the crooked way.

4 Jesus, my great High Priest,
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.

5 My dear almighty Lord,
my Conqu'ror and my King,
thy scepter and thy sword,
thy reigning grace I sing.
Thine is the pow'r;
behold, I sit in willing bonds
before thy feet.
