89. There Is No Name So Sweet on Earth

1 There is no name so sweet on earth,
No name so sweet in heaven -
The name, before His wondrous birth,
To Christ the Saviour given.

We love to sing of Christ our King,
And hail Him blessed Jesus!
For there's no word ear ever ever heard,
So dear, so sweet as "Jesus!"

2 'Twas Gabriel first that did proclaim,
to His most blessed mother,
That name which now and evermore
We praise above all other. [Refrain]

3 And when he hung upon the tree
They wrote His name above Him,
That all might see the reason we
For evermore must love Him. [Refrain]

4 So now, upon his Father's throne,
Almighty to release us
From sin and pain, He ever reigns -
The Prince and Savior, Jesus. [Refrain]

5 O Jesus! by that matchless name
Thy grace shall fail us never;
Today as yesterday the same,
Thou art the same forever! [Refrain]

6 To Jesus ev'ry knee shall bow
And ev'ry tongue confess Him,
And we unite with saints in light,
Our only Lord, to bless Him. [Refrain]
