Representative Text

1 Blessed name beyond compare,
Sweeter than all else can be,
How it soothes my ev’ry care,
Bringing peace, sweet peace to me;
When I hear that blessed name,
How it thrills my inmost soul!
It will ever be the same
While eternal ages roll.

Jesus! blessed name,
Jesus! still the same;
I will sing it more and more
‘Till we meet on heaven’s shore.

2 When, oppress’d by doubt and fear,
Long and weary seems the day,
I but speak that name so dear,
All the shadows flee away;
In the time of dark despair,
When my heart is crush’d with grief,
That sweet name, low-breathed in prayer,
Always brings me sweet relief. [Chorus]

3 When our days on earth are o’er,
And we gain the promised home,
We will join with millions more
Who from ev’ry clime have come;
Greatest joy in heav’n will be,
With our tears all wiped away,
Face to face our Lord to see,
Praise His name thro’ endless day. [Chorus]
