Sweeter than the songs we sing,
Better than all earthly things,
Sweeter than the joy they bring,
Sweeter than all is Jesus.

Refrain

Jesus, blessèd name,
Sweeter than all earthly fame;
Jesus, blessèd name,
Sweeter than all is Jesus.

Love like His will ne’er grow old,
Keeps me safe within the fold;
Sweeter than a world of gold,
Sweeter than all is Jesus.

Refrain

Jesus makes me pure and strong,
Tells me which is right from wrong,
And I praise Him all day long—
Sweeter than all is Jesus.
