Desired of all nations, you’re the promise of Abraham
You’re Moses’ fire and you’re burning in the soul of a man
Ancient of Days, before creation was, you were
And in you the stars and the atoms hold together

Praise the name of Jesus
Praise the name of Jesus
Matchless in grace and endless in fame
Is the name of Jesus,
Is the name of Jesus.

Immortal King, you’re the fullness of all deity
In you the light of the Father dwells bodily
Yet you took my flesh, you understand my weakness
Your obedience is humanity’s completeness

Lamb that was slain before the foundation of the world
You knew my name long before the earth first turned
Yet you cried the tears of the hell we deserved
And you took the fear of the hell we had earned

You bore my death and went to my grave
Laid in the tomb till the third day
Your heart beats now, victorious you rise
You are alive
