Jesus, Thy name I love
All oth­er names above,
Jesus, my Lord:
O Thou art all to me;
Nothing to please I see,
Nothing apart from Thee,
Jesus, my Lord.

Thou, bless­èd Son of God,
Hast bought me with Thy blood,
Jesus, my Lord:
O how great is Thy love,
All oth­er loves above,
Love that I dai­ly prove,
Jesus, my Lord.

When un­to Thee I flee,
Thou wilt my re­fuge be,
Jesus, my Lord:
What need I now to fear,
What earth­ly grief or care,
Since Thou art ev­er near?
Jesus, my Lord.

Soon Thou wilt come again;
I shall be hap­py then,
Jesus my Lord:
Then Thine own face I’ll see,
Then I shall like Thee be,
Then ev­er more with Thee,
Jesus, my Lord.
