47. Holy Name of Jesus

1 Let the holy name of Jesus
Dwell forever in thy heart;
It will cleanse, refresh, and cheer you,
Shield from Satan's fatal dart.
O the joy, the precious fountain,
Which his sacred name supplies;
It is balm for wounded spirits,
It is life that never dies.

2 Souls all weary, worn, and troubled,
Bowed with sorrow, pain, and grief;
Weak and trembling—in this fountain
Surely find a sweet relief.
With thy woes and earthly labors,
Weary with thy load of care;
Come, O come unto the Savior,
In him endless pleasures are.
