#63: Take the Name of Jesus with You

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Take the name of Jesus with you,

Child of sorrow and of woe;

It will joy and comfort give you —

Take it, then where’er you go.

CHORUS

Precious name (precious name),

O how sweet! (how sweet)!

Hope of earth and joy of heav’n;

Precious name (precious name),

O how sweet (how sweet)!

Hope of earth and joy of heav’n

2

Take the name of Jesus ever,

As a shield from ev’ry snare;

If temptations round you gather,

Breathe that holy name in prayer.

CHORUS

3

O the preicous name of Jesus!

How it thrills our souls with joy,

WHen His loving arms receive us

And His songs our tongues employ!

CHORUS

4

At the name of Jesus bowing,

Falling prostrate at His feet,

King of kings in heav’n we’ll crown Him

When our journey is complete.

CHORUS
