If you know where to get a good pho­to of Win­ters (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


It fell up­on a sin­ner’s ear,
That sweet­est name—Je­sus!
It ban­ished all His doubts and fears,
That migh­ti­est name—Je­sus!


Then sound it out on hill and plain,
That won­drous name—Je­sus!
Echo it o’er and o’er again,
That glo­ri­ous name—Je­sus!

’Twas whis­pered to a wea­ried heart,
That cheer­ing name—Je­sus!
It bade all gloom and care de­part,
That bless­èd name—Je­sus!


It brought the wan­der­er back to God,
That ten­der name—Je­sus!
It guid­eth to your blest abode,
That pre­cious name—Je­sus!


’Tis dear­er far than fame or wealth,
That love­li­est name—Je­sus!
’Twill res­cue from eter­nal death,
That sav­ing name—Je­sus!
