The Name of Jesus

C                 G
The Name of Jesus is so sweet,
I love its music to repeat;
It makes my joys full and complete,
             D       G7
The precious Name of Jesus!

   C           G7
“Jesus,” O how sweet the Name!
“Jesus,” every day the same;
“Jesus,” let all saints proclaim
           C      G7    C
Its worthy praise forever.

I love the Name of Him Whose heart
Knows all my griefs and bears a part;
Who bids all anxious fears depart,
I love the Name of Jesus!


That Name I fondly love to hear,
It never fails my heart to cheer;
Its music dries the falling tear,
Exalt the Name of Jesus!


No word of man can ever tell
How sweet the Name I love so well;
O let its praises ever swell,
O praise the Name of Jesus!
