John 1:1–5 (Listen)

The Word Became Flesh

1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life,1 and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

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, O our God, to Thee.
