288. Oh, How I Love Jesus

1 There is a name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
It sounds as music in mine ear,
The sweetest name on earth.

Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!

2 It tells me of a Savior's love,
Who died to set me free;
It tells me of His precious blood,
The sinner's perfect plea. [Chorus]

3 It tells me what my Father hath
In store for ev'ry day;
And tho' I tread a darksome path,
Yields sunshine all the way. [Chorus]

4 It tells of One whose loving heart
Can feel my deepest woe,
Who in each sorrow bears a part
That none can bear below. [Chorus]
