     17 Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: 18 For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole. 19 He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. 20 In famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword. 21 Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue: neither shalt thou be afraid of destruction when it cometh. 22 At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth. 23 For thou shalt be in league with the stones of the field: and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with thee. 24 And thou shalt know that thy tabernacle shall be in peace; and thou shalt visit thy habitation, and shalt not sin. 25 Thou shalt know also that thy seed shall be great, and thine offspring as the grass of the earth. 26 Thou shalt come to thy grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in in his season. 27 Lo this, we have searched it, so it is; hear it, and know thou it for thy good.(KJV)

1. Jesus! Name of wondrous love, 
Name all other names above, 
Unto which must every knee 
Bow in deep humility. 

2. Jesus! Name decreed of old, 
To the maiden mother told– 
Kneeling in her lowly cell– 
By the angel Gabriel. 

3. Jesus! Name of priceless worth 
To the fallen sons of earth, 
For the promise that it gave, 
“Jesus shall His people save.” 

4. Jesus! Name of mercy mild, 
Given to the holy Child 
When the cup of human woe 
First He tasted here below. 

5. Jesus! Only name that’s given 
Under all the mighty heaven 
Whereby man, to sin enslaved, 
Bursts his fetters and is saved. 

6. Jesus! Name of wondrous love, 
Human name of God above; 
Pleading only this, we flee, 
Helpless, 0 our God, to Thee.
