Lyrics

Let the holy name of Jesus
Dwell forever in thy heart;
It will cleanse, refresh, and cheer you,
Shield from Satan’s fatal dart.
Oh, the joy, the precious fountain,
Which His sacred name supplies;
It is balm for wounded spirits,
It is life that never dies.

Souls are weary, worn and troubled,
Bowed with sorrow, pain and grief;
Weak and trembling—in this fountain
Surely find a sweet relief.
With thy woes and earthly labors,
Weary with thy load of care,
Come, oh come unto the Savior:
Drink of endless pleasure there.
