#190: We Bless the Name of Christ, the Lord

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

We bless the name of Christ, the Lord,

We bless Him for His holy Word,

Who loved to do His Father’s will,

And all His righteousness fulfill.

2

We follow Him with pure delight

To sanctify His sacred rite;

And thus our faith with water seal,

To prove obedience that we feel.

3

Baptized in God — the Father, Son,

And Holy Spirit — Three in One,

With conscience free, we rest in God,

In love and peace, thru Jesus’ blood.

4

By grace we “Abba, Father” cry;

By grace the Comforter comes nigh;

And for Thy grace our love shall be

Forever, only, Lord, for Thee.
