Oh, wondrous name, by prophets heard
Long years before His birth;
They saw Him coming from afar,
The Prince of Peace on earth.


The Wonderful! The Counselor!
The Great and Mighty Lord!
The everlasting Prince of Peace!
The King, the Son of God!

Oh, glorious name the angels praise
And ransomed saints adore,
The name above all other names,
Our refuge evermore.


Oh, precious name, exalted high,
To Him all power is giv’n;
Through Him we triumph over sin,
By Him we enter Heav’n.
