3 The wonderful name
Of our Jesus we’ll sing,
And publish the fame
Of our Captain and King;
With sweet exultation
His goodness we prove
His name is Salvation,
His nature is love.
 
4 We now are enlisted
In Jesus’ bless’d cause,
Divinely assisted
To conquer our foes;
His grace will support us
Till conflicts are o’er,
He then will escort us
To Zion’s bright shore.
 
Hymn 76 • In ancient days men fear’d the Lord
HYMN 76. L. M.
 
1 In ancient days men fear’d the Lord,
And by their faith receiv’d his word,
Then God bestow’d upon the meek,
The Priesthood of Melchizedek.
 
2 By help of this their faith increas’d,
Till they with God spoke face to face:
An Enoch, he would walk with God;
A Noah ride safe o’er the flood.
