Music: Henry John Gauntlett, 1805-76

The first, and only hymn, from the Lutheran Service Book and Hymnal, celebrating “Circumcision and Name of Jesus”.

I am not sure if it is specifically to celebrate Jesus’ circumcision or any circumcision.

Clarinet Arrangement: 50-jesusnameofwondrouslove

Jesus, Name of wondrous love!
Human Name of God above;
Pleading only this we flee,
Helpless, O our God, to thee. Amen.

Kind of a bleak, masochistic, hymn, but at least it is mercifully, and appropriately, SHORT.

Doubled clarinets on all parts, with the usual “Large Room” audacity Effect.
