Glorious Is Thy Name (Blessed Saviour we adore thee)

1  Blessed Saviour, we adore thee; we thy love and grace proclaim. Thou art mighty; thou art holy. Glorious is thy matchless name!   Chorus:  Glorious glorious is thy name, O Lord!  2  Great Redeemer, Lord and Master,  light of all eternal days,  let the saints of every nation sing thy just and endless praise!  3  From the throne of heaven's glory to the cross of sin and shame, thou didst come to die a ransom, guilty sinners to reclaim!  4  Come, O come, immortal Saviour, come and take thy royal throne.  Come, and reign, and reign forever, be the kingdom all thine own!
This hymn was written by American Baptist singer, song-writer and music editor Baylus Benjamin McKinney (1886-1952).

Copyright for it was first registered in 1942 by Broadman Press.

With meter with refrain, the McKinney's tune is sometimes referred to as GLORIOUS NAME.
