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 my Saviour forth.
2 But O what gentle terms,
what condescending ways
doth our Redeemer use
to teach his heavenly grace!
Mine eyes with joy and wonder see
what forms of love he bears for me.
3 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.
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 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.
6 Now let my soul arise,
and tread the tempter down;
my Captain leads me forth
to conquest and a crown.
A feeble saint shall win the day,
though death and hell obstruct the way.
7 Should all the hosts of death,
and powers of hell unknown,
put their most dreadful forms
of rage and mischief on,
I shall be safe, for Christ displays
superior power, and guardian grace.

Join all the glorious Names. J. Watts. [Names and Titles of Jesus Christ.] Published in his Hymns & Sacred Songs, 1709, Book i., No. 150, in 12 stanzas of 8 lines, as the second of two hymns on "The Offices of Christ, from several Scriptures." It has been freely altered, abbreviated, and divided from M. Madan's Psalms & Hymns 1760, to the present time. The line which has caused most trouble to the editors has been stanza x., line 1, "My dear, Almighty Lord," the term "dear" being very objectionable to many. The line has undergone the following amongst other changes:—
1760. M. Madan. "Thou dear Almighty Lord."
1769. Ash & Evans. "My great Almighty Lord."
1830. Wesleyan Hymn Book "O Thou Almighty Lord."
1833. Bickersteth. "Divine Almighty Lord."
1835. H. V. Elliott. "Almighty, Sovereign Lord."
1851. J. H. Gurney. “Almighty, gracious Lord."
1858. Baptist Psalms & Hymns. "My Saviour and my Lord."
1876. Presbyterian Hymnal. "Jesus, Almighty Lord."
To this list may be traced most of the changes found in modern hymn-books. There are others also of less importance. In addition to abbreviations which begin with the original first line, there are also the following centos:—
1. Arrayed in mortal flesh. This was given in H. Conyers's Collection, 1774, in 5 stanzas, and in other hymn-books.
2. Great Prophet of my God. In Alford's Year of Praise, 1867, &c.
3. Jesus, my Great High Priest. This, in Spurgeon's Our Own Hymn Book, 1866, is composed of stanzas viii., vi., and ix. of this hymn, and stanza vi.," Immense compassion reigns," from No. 148 of Book i. of Watts's Hymns, "With cheerful voice I sing."
4. My dear Almighty Lord. In Spurgeon's Our Own Hymn Book, 1866, No. 372.
The original hymn is justly regarded as one of Watts's finest efforts. In its various forms its use is extensive in most English-speaking countries. It has been translation in whole, or in part, into various languages, including Latin, in R. Bingham's Hymnologia Christiana Latina, 1870, as "Pange nomen omne mirum."
