O, How I Love Jesus

 G
There is a name I love to hear;
  D                G
I love to sing its worth.

It sounds like music to my ear;
      C      D7	     G
The sweetest name on earth.


Chorus:

G
O, how I love Jesus,
D7            G
O, how I love Jesus,

O, how I love Jesus,
   C       D7          G
Because He first loved me!


It tells me of a Saviour’s love,
Who died to set me free;
It tells me of His precious blood,
The sinner’s perfect plea.


It tells of One whose loving heart
Can feel my deepest woe,
Who in each sorrow bears a part
That none can bear below.
