The great Physician now is near,
The sympathizing Jesus;
He speaks the drooping heart to cheer,
Oh! hear the voice of Jesus.

Refrain

Sweetest note in seraph song,
Sweetest name on mortal tongue;
Sweetest carol ever sung,
Jesus, blessèd Jesus.

Your many sins are all forgiv’n,
Oh! hear the voice of Jesus;
Go on your way in peace to Heav’n,
And wear a crown with Jesus.

Refrain

All glory to the dying Lamb!
I now believe in Jesus;
I love the blessèd Savior’s name,
I love the name of Jesus.

Refrain

The children, too, both great and small,
Who love the name of Jesus,
May now accept the gracious call
To work and live for Jesus.

Refrain

Come, brethren, help me sing His praise,
Oh, praise the name of Jesus;
Oh, sisters, all your voices raise,
Oh, bless the name of Jesus.

Refrain

His name dispels my guilt and fear,
No other name but Jesus;
Oh! how my soul delights to hear
The charming name of Jesus.

Refrain

And when to that bright world above,
We rise to see our Jesus,
We’ll sing around the throne of love
His name, the name of Jesus.
