Lyrics

No other name but Jesus,
Before the throne I plead;
No other friend but Jesus,
For me can intercede.

Refrain

I’ll praise Him while I live;
My daily song shall be,
I love my blessèd Savior,
Because He first loved me.

No ear like that of Jesus
Can hear me when I pray;
No hand like that of Jesus,
Can smooth life’s devious way.

Refrain

No words like those of Jesus
Can give me joy and rest;
No love like that of Jesus
Can make me truly blest.

Refrain

Forever and forever,
While all the ages roll,
His name shall be my watchword,
His glory fill my soul.
