I know of a world that is sunk in shame,
Where hearts oft faint and tire;
But I know of a name, a pre­cious name,
That can set that world on fire;
Its sound is sweet, its let­ters flame.


I know of a name, a pre­cious name,
’Tis Je­sus.

I know of a book a mar­vel­ous book,
With a mes­sage for all who hear;
And the same dear name, His won­der­ful name,
Illumines its pag­es clear;
The book is His Word, its mes­sage I’ve heard.


I know of a home in Im­ma­nu­el’s land,
Where hearts ne’er faint nor tire;
And His mar­vel­ous name, His own dear name,
Inspires the heav’n­ly choir;
Hear the me­lo­dy ring­ing, my own heart sing­ing.
