O the name, the name of Jesus,
How my heart it thrills!
Sweetest music floating round me,
All my soul it fills.


O the precious name of Jesus,
Breathe it low in prayer;
At the cross of Jesus bending,
God will hear thee there.

Breathe, O breathe the name of Jesus,
Low before the throne;
Owning all your sin and weakness,
Trusting Him alone.


When the heart is sad and lonely,
Sinful though it be,
Thou canst plead the name of Jesus,
Jesus died for thee.
