George C. Needham (1844–1902)


I hear the words of Je­sus,
They speak of peace with God;
I see the Lamb, Christ Je­sus,
Who bore my hea­vy load;
I trust the blood of Je­sus,
From sin it sets me free,
I love the name of Je­sus,
Who gave Him­self for me.

His word, di­vine­ly blessèd,
It shows me what I am;
His cross, it brings sal­va­tion,
The vic­tim was the Lamb;
His blood pro­cur­eth par­don,
And jus­ti­fies the soul,
His name, how sweet and pre­cious,
It makes the sin­ner whole.

Oh! hear the words of Je­sus,
The tid­ings are for thee;
Oh! clasp the cross of Je­sus,
And there for refuge flee;
Oh! trust the blood of Je­sus,
Be saved this ve­ry hour;
Oh! love the name of Je­sus,
Blest name of won­drous pow­er.
