71. The Name of Jesus

1 The name of Jesus is so sweet,
I love its music to repeat;
It makes my joys full and complete,
The precious name of Jesus!

“Jesus,” - O how sweet the name,
“Jesus,” - ev'ry day the same;
“Jesus,” - let all saints proclaim
Its worthy praise forever!

2 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! [Chorus]

3 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! [Chorus]

4 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. [Chorus]
