5 JESUS is the Name exalted 6 Therefore we in love adoring Over every other name;
This most blessed Name revere, In this Name, whene'er assaulted, Holy Jesus, Thee imploring
We can put our foes to shame; So to write it in us here, Strength to them who else had That hereafter heavenward soaring halted,
We may sing with angels there. Eyes to blind, and feet to lame.
Matt. ii: 9.
Straw may be His pallet,
Mean His garb may be,
Yet with power transcendent Speed to Bethlehem's walls ; He all hearts can free. As they onward journey,
4 At His crib they worship, Faith, which firmly rests
Prostrate on the floor ; Upon hope unswerving,
And their God, there present, Triumphs in their breasts.
In that Babe adore : 2 Oh, what joys ecstatic
Let us to that Infant, Thrilled each heart, from far, As their followers true, When, to guide their footsteps Hearts with faith o'erflowing Gleamed that beacon star;
Give, our tribute due ;O'er that home so holy,
5 Holiest Love presenting, Pouring down its ray,
Gold unto our King ;
To the Man pure bodies,
Myrrh-like, chastely bring; 3 Costly pomp and pageant
Unto Him, as incense,
Vow and prayer address ; He, a mightier Monarch,
So, with meetest off' rings
Him our God confess.

Hath aris'n on us to-day ;
That must surely drive away All things that to night belong, All the sad earth's woe and
His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting
Father, the Prince of peace. Isa. ix: 6.
I Alone to God on high be praise
And thankful adoration,
Rejoice in His salvation.
All feud and strife be ended.
2 Ye Christian people, all rejoice,
Each soul with joy upspringing;
With love and gladness singing.
In love hath He redeemed us.
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John viii : 36.
i Come, Redeemer, blessed Jesus,
Born to set Thy people free!
Let us find our rest in Thee.
2 Israel's strength and consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art:
Joy of every longing heart !
Born a child, and yet a king;
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
Rule in all our hearts alone:
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
