    Right now I'm listening to this gem of a Norwegian hymn, which is one of my most favorite hymns of all time:



    Here's my own, slightly clumsy translation of the lyrics, with some freedoms taken in order to make the text flow better:


    Never fading name of Jesus, through the ages ever strong.
    Everlasting name of Jesus, all it's foes will surely fail.
    Ever fresh it's message staying, calling young and old alike.
    In this name is found a power, reconciling men with God.

    Jesus' name, how I adore it, it has set my soul ablaze. In this name I found salvation, not in any other name.



    Name of Jesus, so resplendent, let resound across the world.
    Bringing hope and consolation, as no other word can do.
    In it's presence hate will quiver, evil in it's presence flees.
    Through this name a kingdom righteous, springs forth with boundless life.

    Jesus' name, how I adore it, it has set my soul ablaze. In this name I found salvation, not in any other name.



    Like a lighthouse brightly shining in the night is Jesus' name,
    to the harbor of salvation it leads every ship at sea.
    When the sun has lost it's glory, Jesus' name will still shine bright.
    And a multitude of nations will in Heaven sing it's praise.

    Jesus' name, how I adore it, it has set my soul ablaze. In this name I found salvation, not in any other name.

    Jesus' name, how I adore it, it has set my soul ablaze. In this name I found salvation, not in any other name.




    As I said, I had to take certain freedoms when it came to translating it, so it's not a 100% literal translation, but it's pretty close, and the parts where I couldn't come up with a literal translation should still preserve the message of the song pretty faithfully.

    For Zym:
