Jesus! how much Thy name unfolds

Jesus! how much Thy name unfolds
  To every opened ear;
The pardoned sinner’s mem’ry holds
  None other half so dear.
Thy name encircles every grace
  That God as man could show;
There only could He fully trace
  A life divine below.
Jesus—it speaks a life of love,
  Of sorrows meekly borne;
It tells of sympathy above,
  Whatever makes us mourn.
Jesus, the One who knew no sin,
  Made sin to make us just;
Thou gav’st Thyself our love to win,
  Our full confiding trust.
The mention of Thy name shall bow
  Our hearts to worship Thee;
The chiefest of ten thousand Thou,
  Whose love has set us free.
