(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
The name of Jesus is so sweet, I love its music to repeat;
It makes my joys full and complete, The precious name of Jesus!
“Jesus” — O how sweet the name, “Jesus” — Ev’ry day the same;
“Jesus” — let all saints proclaim Its worthy praise forever!
I love the name of Him whose heart Knows all my griefs and bears a part;
Who bids all anxious fears depart — I love the name of Jesus!
That name I fondly love to hear, It never fails my heart to cheer;
Its music dries the falling tear — Exalt the name of Jesus!
No word of man can ever tell How sweet the name I love so well;
O let its praises ever swell, O praise the name of Jesus!
