The name of Jesus is so sweet,
I love its music to repeat;
It makes my joys full and complete,
The precious name of Jesus!


Jesus, O how sweet the name!
Jesus, every day the same;
Jesus, let all saints proclaim
Its worthy praise forever!

I love the name of Him whose heart
Knows all my griefs and bears a part;
Who bids all anxious fears depart,
I love the name of Jesus!


That name I fondly love to hear,
It never fails my heart to cheer;
Its music dries the falling tear,
Exalt the name of Jesus!


No word of man can ever tell
How sweet the name I love so well;
O let its praises ever swell,
O praise the name of Jesus!
