470. Oh, How I Love Jesus

1 There is a Name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music in my ear,
The sweetest Name on earth.

Refrain:
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. [Refrain]

3 It tells me of a Father’s smile
Beaming upon His child;
It cheers me through this little while,
Through desert, waste, and wild. [Refrain]

4 It tells me what my Father hath
In store for every day,
And though I tread a darksome path,
Yields sunshine all the way. [Refrain]

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

6 It bids my trembling heart rejoice;
It dries each rising tear;
It tells me, in a “still small voice,”
To trust and never fear. [Refrain]

7 Jesus, the Name I love so well,
The Name I love to hear:
No saint on earth its worth can tell,
No heart conceive how dear. [Refrain]

8 This Name shall shed its fragrance still
Along this thorny road,
Shall sweetly smooth the rugged hill
That leads me up to God. [Refrain]

9 And there with all the blood-bought throng,
From sin and sorrow free,
I’ll sing the new eternal song
Of Jesus’ love for me. [Refrain]
