1 To our Redeemer's glorious Name
Awake the sacred song!
O may His love (immortal flame!)
Tune every heart and tongue.

In wonder dies away.

3 Let wonder still with love unite,
And gratitude and joy;
Jesus be our supreme delight,
His praise our best employ.

4 Dear Lord, while we adoring pay
Our humble thanks to thee;
May every heart with rapture say,
"The Savior died for me!"

5 O may the sweet, the blissful theme,
Fill every heart and tongue,
Till strangers love Thy charming name,
And join the sacred song.
