Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

159. Take the Name of Jesus with You (Precious Name)

1 Take the name of Jesus with you,
child of sorrow and of woe;
it will joy and comfort give you;
take it then, where'er you go.

Precious name, oh, how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heav'n.
Precious name, oh, how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of heav'n.

2 Take the name of Jesus ever
as a shield from ev'ry snare;
if temptations 'round you gather,
breathe that holy name in prayer. [Refrain]

3 Oh, the precious name of Jesus!
How it thrills our souls with joy,
when his loving arms receive us,
and his songs our tongues employ! [Refrain]

4 At the name of Jesus bowing,
falling prostrate at his feet,
King of kings in heav'n we'll crown him,
when our journey is complete. [Refrain]
