Lyrics

No other name but Thine, O Lord,
Can save a dying soul,
And yet to plead that name in faith
Would make the vilest whole.

Refrain

No other name such hope can bring,
Or heavenly rest impart;
No other name such balm can give
To soothe a breaking heart.

Thy name Oh how I love to breathe
In softly whispered tone,
When in my closet, closed and still,
I talk with Thee alone.

Refrain

I feel, I know, Thou hearest prayer
And answ’rest my request,
Bestowing what Thy love decides
The wisest and the best.

Refrain

And when I reach Thy dear abode,
And all its joys are mine,
No other name shall be my song—
No other name but Thine.
