THE FAME OF JESUS
Â“And the fame of Him went out into every place of the country roundabout.Â”
Have you heard the fame of Jesus?
How from heaven to earth He came?
How He died to ransom sinners,
That they might declare His fame?
Have you seen His matchless glory
Shining in this world of night?
Do you know the face of Jesus
Far outshines all other light?
Have you heard how love once brought Him
From the realms of joy above
To a world of sin and sorrow?
Wonderful, unfathomed love!
Have you sought Him? Have you found Him?
Are you trusting in His Name?
Do you know Him? Do you love Him? –
Jesus, evermore the same?
Do you know He loves to pardon,
And to break the power of sin?
Have you proved His power to heal you
Of the leprosy within?
Have you heard the voice of Jesus?
Do you love His precious name?
Have you seen His matchless glory?
Speak His glory! Sound His fame.
