Lyrics

Oh, wonderful name,
How my heart thrills to hear it—
The name of my risen
Redeemer and King!
It falls like the music
Of Heav’n on my spirit,
And fills me with rapture
Divine while I sing.

Refrain

Jesus! wonderful name!
Sweeter than all the world to me;
Jesus! ever the same—
Now and thro’ all eternity.

When lost in my sin,
’Twas the name of my Savior
That banished my fear
And brought peace to my soul;
I’ll sing it in glory
Forever and ever
With joy while the years
Of eternity roll.

Refrain

I think of the cross
Where He suffered to save me,
And oh, how my heart
Thrills with glory divine
To know it is life
Everlasting He gave me,
When, sinless, He died
For a soul such as mine.
