652. 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.

Refrain:
We love to sing around our King,
And hail him blessed Jesus;
For there's no word ear ever heard
So dear, so sweet as "Jesus."

2 And, when he hung upon the tree,
They wrote this Name above him;
That all might see the reason we
For evermore must love him. [Refrain]

3 So now, upon his Father's throne,
Almighty to release us
From sin and pains, he gladly reigns,
The Prince and Saviour Jesus. [Refrain]

4 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]

5 O Jesus, by that matchless Name,
Thy grace shall fail us never;
Today as yesterday the same,
Thou art the same for ever. [Refrain]

Amen.
