#64: The Name of Jesus

Standard

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

1

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!

Chorus

“Jesus” — O how sweet the name, “Jesus” — Ev’ry day the same;

“Jesus” — let all saints proclaim Its worthy praise forever!

2

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!

CHORUS

3

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!

CHORUS

4

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!

CHORUS
