92. I Know of a Name

1 I know of a Name, a beautiful Name,
That angels brought down to earth;
They whispered it low one night long ago,
To a maiden of lowly birth.

That beautiful Name, that beautiful Name,
From sin has pow'r to free us!
That beautiful Name, that wonderful Name,
That matchless Name is Jesus!

2 I know of a Name, a beautiful Name,
That unto a Babe was giv'n;
The stars glittered bright throughout that glad night,
And angels praised God in heav’n. (Refrain)

3 The One of that Name, my Savior became,
My Savior of Calvary;
My sins nailed Him there, my burdens He bare.
He suffered all this for me. (Refrain)

4 I love that blest Name, that wonderful Name,
Made higher than all in heav'n.
’Twas whispered, I know, in my heart long ago--
To Jesus my life I’ve giv’n. (Refrain)
