Ring out the name of Jesus

Full Text

1 Ring out the name of Jesus,
Let all the people know
’Tis Christ, our Lord and Savior,
Who overcomes the foe.
We follow at His bidding,
We trust in Him alone,
And lift our loud hosannas
To Him upon the throne.

2 We lift His blood stained banner,
His precious name we bear,
And pressing to the conflict,
The Gospel armor wear.
The shield of faith we carry,
In battling for the right,
His Word of truth our weapon,
His strength our only might.

3 He knows the dangers round us,
He knows the hidden snare;
Wherever He shall lead us,
Is safety, only there.
The power of His salvation
Our joyful song shall be;
We’ll watch and work for Jesus,
His servants glad and free.
