1 Jesus, delightful name!
Salvation’s in the sound;
Search the wide world, a sweeter word
In nature can’t be found.

2 Behold, an angel gives
The holy Babe the name;
Behold the heavenly choir unite
To sing His lasting fame.

3 Jesus, the king of grace,
An empire wide shall have;
From sin, the worst of foes to man,
His people He shall save.

4 O’er Jacob He shall reign;
Gentiles the knee shall bend;
His crown shall flourish on His head,
His kingdom never end.

5 Ye creatures all that dwell
On earth, in air and sea,
Th’exalted name of Jesus praise,
And cheerful bow the knee.

6 Jesus, Thy name we praise,
And Thy redemption sing,
From all our sins our souls redeem,
And Thy salvation bring.

7 When at Thy Father’s throne,
For needful grace we pray;
Thy all prevailing name we’ll plead,
And send our fears away.

8 Whilst on Thy precious blood
For pardon we rely,
Swayed by Thy richest grace we will
All worldly lusts deny.

For a time the two societies used the same builing at different hours, but in 1755 they were united, with Mr. Needham and Mr. Foot as co-pa… Go to person page >
