I will extol thee, my God, O King;
and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.
I will worship toward thy holy temple,
and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth:
for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
Psalm 145:1 and Psalm 138:2

Blessèd be the Name

All praise to Him Who reigns above In majesty supreme,
Who gave His Son for man to die,That He might man redeem!

Blessèd be the Name! Blessèd be the Name!
Blessèd be the Name of the Lord!
Blessèd be the Name! Blessèd be the Name!
Blessèd be the Name of the Lord!

His Name above all names shall stand, Exalted more and more,
At God the Father’s own right hand, Where angel hosts adore.

Redeemer, Savior, Friend of man Once ruined by the fall,
Thou hast devised salvation’s plan, For Thou hast died for all.

His Name shall be the Counselor, The mighty Prince of Peace,
Of all earth’s kingdoms Conqueror, Whose reign shall never cease.

Blessèd be the Name! Blessèd be the Name!
Blessèd be the Name of the Lord!
Blessèd be the Name! Blessèd be the Name!
Blessèd be the Name of the Lord!

The stanzas of “Blessed Be the Name” first appeared in 1891 in Hymns of the Christian Life. The melody was likely one of the early folk hymn tunes used in the 19th Century camp meetings.
