711. 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 for ever.

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! [Refrain]

3 No word of man can ever tell
How sweet the Name I love so well;
Oh, let its praises ever swell,
Oh, praise the name of Jesus! [Refrain]
