Jesus

Jesus:
Name of wondrous love, name all other names above,
Unto which must every knee bow in deep humility.

Jesus:
Name decreed of old to the maiden mother told---
Kneeling in her lowly cell---by the angel Gabriel.

Jesus:
Name of priceless worth to the children of the earth
For the promise that it gave, "Jesus shall his people save."

Jesus:
Name of wondrous love, human name of God above;
Pleading only this, we flee, helpless, O our God, to Thee.

As quoted in Preparing for Jesus by Walter Wangerin Jr. (Words William W. How, 19th century)

What a beautiful name! Sometimes I hear/use it so often that I forget to stop and think about all the wonderful things that His name means! Thanks for the reminder.
