Blessed be the Name, blessed be the Name;
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
Blessed be the Name, blessed be the Name;
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
'Tis music in the sinner's ears -
Blessed be the Name of the Lord! [Refrain]

Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
His blood can make the foulest clean -
Blessed be the Name of the Lord! [Refrain]

When Jesus washed my sins away -
Blessed be the Name of the Lord. [Refrain]
