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

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

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

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.
