Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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.

Refrain:
“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]

Amen.
