Jesus is the Sweetest Name I Know

D                          G      A7    D
There have been names that I have loved to hear
                    G           D
But never has there been a name so dear
   A7                  D
To this heart of mine as the name divine;
    A7                         E7 A
The precious, precious name of Jesus.


Chorus:

   D         G               D
Jesus is the sweetest name I know
         A7                   D
And Heís just the same as His precious name.
                      G              D
And thatís the reason why I love Him so;
     A7                          D
Oh, Jesus is the sweetest name I know


There is no name in earth or heaven above
That we should give such honour and such love
As that blessed name, let us all acclaim
That wondrous blessed name of Jesus.


And someday I shall see Him face to face
To thank and praise Him for His wondrous grace
Which He gave to me when He made me free;
The blessed Son of God called Jesus.
